Cloudscape 1.0 by freespace Cloudscape 1.0 by freespace
Sorry about the mix up, for some reason I was under the impression hameed. My sincere apologies
MY friend Chris (ni) took a rather nice picture of some clouds, so I cropped it, then found a boat, then found some bird shots (Not sure where these came from, but I think mostly [link], but if you see your work here, let me know asap so I can add you to the credits), then finally stole a portion of Effulgence, by dinyctis, rotated, cropped etc.

Took my around 6 hours on the gimp.

My first attempt at this type of manip, comments and critque would be most welcome :-)

Nice one mate. The only thing I would do is blur and soften the boat so it blends in with the rest of the image.
Good work.

I like the treasure planet thing u have going here. The boat though looks like a photograph stuck on to a painting. Maybe use a filter or something to give the boat a more ‘painted’ look.

love the concept!! once again, like another fantastic photomanip.. the thing thats stopping me from favving this awesome idea (i love love the satellite)... is that it doesnt feel in place :) perhaps more work on the 'seams' will better the image.. study more photos :D

the edges and surfaces themselves do not reflect the surrounding light, in order to put them 'in tandem' with the depth of the environment.. the colour is okay, but they stick out too much cause of sharp edges that are of different values, of the values that came with their PARENT pictures before u cut em out :)

I really like it. I've barely touched the surface of The Gimp. It all seems complicated so kudos to you.

looks amazing. I give your props mainly for doing this with the gimp though. I have yet to do anything decent with it to this day.

even though it doesn't belong in photography but in indy art-->manip, i'd say

oh diny is dinyctis
he's too controversial and bitchy for my liking (i know him from the forums... but then again everyone there seems to be that way, which would explain why i haven't shown my 'face' there during the past year)

man this is totally surreal
it reminds me of some of salvadore dali's, and to a lesser extent m.c.escher's work.

i think it looks fine as is. any more touching up would ruin the impact of a boat in the sky :D

Thanks for the comment mate :-) I agree, the ship/boat is fine as it is. The whole thing has been frozen now too :) Unless some one finds something wrong with it that is :P

This looks realy great!
For some reasen I think the boat is a bit to much in here ... I would leave that one out of it.
But I do like the setting with the birds, planet and clouds!

Great work.

Oh man that's crazy. For a first manip. It's very good. The lighting work isn't bad at all, you've seem to have captured it on the birds well, and the boat looks good as light only touches the sails.

The planets a bit blurry though, you should try and create your own planet in photoshop. They're not that hard to do and that way it's a lot easier to meld into the scene since your working at at your level of lighting, etc.

..

I looked a bit closer and the boat seems a bit too bright where there should be shadows.. I think with some shading down the back and some sharpening will fix it up nicely.

Anyways, awesome work. I think with a bit of tweaking for consistency, it'll be amazing. +fav from me anyway.

interesting idea :) try to find more definition (especially the planet) and dont forget the light sources!

freespace Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2003
I tried to apply lighting effects with light sources, but I managed to run out of memory @ 512 RAM :S Need a a better computer first :-)

BTW, what do you mean by "more definition" ? Less blury / sharper ?
