Oblivion by vest Oblivion by vest
Another one from the "cleaning out my hard drive and I can't believe I missed it" series. This was from the same shoot as Departure 2, but I took it from on top of the pier instead of below it. It was also taken twenty minutes earlier before the fog had lifted, back when it was still so thick and soupy that you could hardly see the ground from the top of the pier. Having the lights on was a phenomenal touch that really helped drive this one.

It's also important to note that this wasn't taken on my usual camera, but the one that my dad uses. It's about a third the size of my usual hardware with a massive display screen. I call it the ATM-card-of-photographic-doom.

I took a picture just like this.

But then I took an arrow to the knee and dropped it in the sea.

You ruined a perfectly good fog scene by breaking the very first rule of coloring that you taught me.
You used too much color, it's too pure, too blue, saturate it further. I am actually dissapointed, I loved the concept and where you were taking it but you went too far. TOO FAR i say.

:whisper: Psst, I didn't touch up this photo. :thumbsup::lol:

I actually did try adding a little more blue to get a stronger primary, and it started getting saturation hotspots, meaning there were just bands of solid color that would hit its peak and start to "pitch-out", as in it would lose the transition and turn into a solid blue blob.

Then again, being on a different camera, it did have some different parameters. Maybe...heh, I got it. The levels adjustment. I bet it was when I decided to slightly darken the picture and add a slight bit of contrast, it did that, because I am finding the blue a bit unbelievable. Maybe it's just far worse on your computer because I know my monitor is a bit odd, but blah blah blah, if there's anything we learned in Belinda's class, it's that only slackers and retards blame their drawbacks on the projector.

Maybe I can take this image and actually give it a tad bit of desaturation so the fog doesn't look so...watery. Though I do know fog really can get blue when conditions are right.

I take back what I said then.

I like how this one draws the viewer in. Curious to discover what's at the end of the pier and warmly cocooned within the cool fog. Shrouded if you will. The lights make this shot along with the slight curve to the railing on the left. That little bit of a hook leaving the viewer feeling as though they are seeing a siren's call. Or maybe I am just overly tired tonight?
