I was late for the Statue contest ,But I thought I'd share Member reactions:
Check your contrast on your monitor, Pree. I think your contrast is showing darker areas for you than it is in publication. I can see some discrepancies in the mask and blend. I love the composition and the frosty appearance of the statue. Cool
Hits do you mean the purple mist. maybe I was to subtle.
A Butterfly's Final Flight Back to Ash No Topaz filters were used. Only the default filters of PS5. The reduce noise filter created the texture on the butterfly. Member reactions:
Thanks, Raj. Great alternative title. I like it. "Struggle" is now in the title.
Like a lot, but white line surrounding left side.
Thanks, Joan, Swash, and Hobbit. I suppose it's just a matter of preference. But I like the white line and I left it. Seems to be more abstract than anything else to me. So I went with what looked good to me. Great question Hobbit
Thanks Balo, Hits, and Lu. 4 or 5 layers of texture with various different treatments...Hope I can remember how it's done...
Hmmm thought this one might make it too. You just never know. It is excellent fo sur
Thanks Gummy. Thanks very much Hits. It was inching it's way up...a couple of more hours and a couple more votes...then maybe I am pleased with the number of great comments. Thanks Everyone.
Very well put together, and hopefully you will remember what you did, and do it again.
Cool work, Splat. Puts me in a dark mood too. Makes me wonder what mood you were in when you chopped this
Thanks, Very Much Newsy. I hadn't thought about it, but your right. The chop does reflect some very sad news we received right around the time of this picture.
