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?

very cool stuff!! i have yet to really play with cutouts and other types of spatial-specific enhancements, but there's a ton of stuff that photoshop/gimp can do.... especially when you start working with the layers individually..... it is a bit addictive isn't it?

I've seen pics like that with the bnw background and the color tree - I love that. I think it's much more interesting with the yellow tree than with a full summer green tree.

I have the gimp but I have no idea how to use it. How do you figure all this stuff out?
