      • Impressive work, but way too dark perhaps.
      • Of crap, i'm photoshopping on a very big screen now, Like more than a yard, and when i look at the large view on this screen it looks really great, but on the smaller view it looks too dark. I guess when you look at it on an avarage size screen it becomes too small and it loses itselve in the darkness. I really expected good reviews on this one...... Oh well, you all should buy a big tv and look at it on that.
      • Took ur pic and just brightened it. click here hope this helps.
      • Thanks HoHouse, for trying, but the trouble is that when you lighten the picture now it doesn't bring the details back that were in the shadows. It just makes all the dark spots lighter , creating big spots with no information ,thereby ruining the picture. I think it will have to be as is. And on a big screen it still looks really great.
      • Hidden: try laying a (White over Black) Gradient Map copy, set to overlay on top of your picture. I tried this with your picture and it looked amazing. To get white over black map tick the reverse box in the gradient map dialog box. Use 2 maps and adjust the opacity if one map doesn't brighten enough. I thought 1 map did just fine though. Great work.
      • Great work. I tried curves, not sure if Its improved. Really Good ...
      • Hey, thanks guys. Splatshot, i work with paint shop pro, and i can't find the reverse box or the gradient map dialog box. I tried crusaders tip(thanks for that.) and did something with curves. Does yours look better.
      • I didn't save my copy, so I don't have anything to compare it to. And yes, this does look better. Nice Chopping. Good Luck.
      • Dark or light, your chop is FANTASTIC. Love it.....
      • Excellent concept and very well executed nice ring and very nice hair style
      • A dictator of Apes... great chop done using all the sources. I can see the ray of light behind the trees.. really impressive job done and the Dark beauty concept is really amazing Love it to see and job done well
      • Me thinks the edit looks amazing. I do have a large 27' screen though
      • Cleaver work with fine detail, impressive and amazing Good luck
      • Thanks for the help and the compliments guys.
      • Personally I think it's fine the way it is, great job.
      • Great stuff jeremix. Congrats on the gold.
      • Jere Jere Jere. Congrats on the gold.
      • Gold Congrats jeremix, great work. My only critique would be with the composition, specifically the section to the left of the central figure I find it to be somewhat cluttered and distracting, and the ape holding the weapon has such a short arm, especially for an ape. Also, the stark contrast in resolution quality between the central figure and the microphones was the 1st thing I noticed. I appreciated your honest critique of my chop, and I'm returning the gesture overall, it is a splendid piece of work, as is to be expected.
      • neh, it's a crappy chop and it shouldn't have won. But my next one will be better hopefully.
