Three Layers

I think this is kinda cool and funny.

Don't have too many ppl picks

So this picture is an exposure blend, like parametrics or whatever, that the Gimp can do- works pretty much the same way, I like it though b/c then it leaves you w/ a three layer image you can play with. Anyway.

These three pictures were taken in Utah of th is yellow tree in the middle of a field while passing by. I got One good steady properly centered w/ contrast pictures, one blurry and overexposed, and one underexposed not so blurry pics. When I combined them and moved some layers around did some level adjustments, I got this nice color picture. But then I thought that it might be cool to do the b/w cutout thing...thoughts?

Fun with Photo-editing

Dave I may need you to hand down some of your scripting/photo-editing magic, because I'm starting to really jive on it. What you think? Only took me like 10mins or so once I figured it out. Going to try again on another picture and use a different way.

So, I've seen this effect used in movies alot, the best examples I can think of is Kill Bill w/ Uma's eyes and earrings and Sin City which was basically shot in color and turned b/w and then things were cut out throughout the movie. All I did was to make a black and white image from a color one, save it, open it as a layer, and cut out the sign. That simple.

Next will be people...

Chinese Politican's Head Rolls

There's many things I don't like about Chinese politics. Their labor laws, economic policies, and the way they treat the environment, to name a few. However, this (Link) is not one of them. In the days of Lewis "Scooter" Libby, I wouldn't mind some more accountability on part of politicians.
