    i love both your photos.

    lefteye- really cool and clever idea, and great execution. my only 'issue' with it is that i wish the background was a little less busy (and maybe darker).

    wannabe- again, cool idea. nice set up. and the dramatic lighting works really well. you potentially could have just ended up with a picture of 2 computers, but it really does feel like good v evil- real sinister feel to it. so, nicely done. and i actually don't have a problem with the background as it is- feels more dramatic.

    as for theme ideas.....

    I like the background as it is, otherwise it would not have the ominous feel that it does now.

    My only complaint is that goofy ass border that I had to remove so that I could make it into a DT

    Thanks for all the comments. I really appreciate it. I didn't want the background to be as burned and close to the mac as it is but the background was way off and I liked this version rather then stamping the white to the edges of the crop.

    I never really looked at that shadow on the left. I mean I saw it but never paid to much attention to it. Kinda bugs me now.

    Hhaha, sorry! I know how annoying that can be

    It just takes away from the shape of the mac, easily photoshopped?

    I'm honored . Just keep it a few more days so when I start a March desktop thread I can use you as a decoy to get more people involved in the arena/photo forum. Show them all what really goes on outside of the CL.

    LMAO It's a very well thought out theme. Kind of abstract in a whimsical kinda way

    Whimsy - 1. capricious humor or disposition; extravagant, fanciful, or excessively playful expression

    abstract - 1. thought of apart from concrete realities, specific objects, or actual instances: an abstract idea.

    So a comical, extravagant, abstract image.

    This isn't even CLOSE to what my original idea was but I really just want to keep this going. I have a lot on my mind these days and this is all that is keeping me sane. *edit* That statement sounded really bad. I am not taking E haha. These are just Excedrin pills.

    not as creative as my first attempt, but at least we're back on track:
    Edited:


    -crop, burned out the background, shadow/highlight adjustment, slight cloning on bottle

    Flash
    ISO 400

    What exactly does this mean towards escape? I guess it is too early to be thinking

    next theme?

    well we have these to choose from which were suggested before:
    -dreams/dreaming
    -travelling
    -whimsical abstraction (whatever the hell that is )

    or someone else can suggest a new one.

    If we were to go with any of the 3 above, i'd say dreams (sorry pea...your's is too off the wall )
