This is my bud with some early morning fishing before the tournament next week. The starry sky and mist were created in PS. The starry sky was created as a test and I had to expand it to fit this pictured. I am interested in what you think of the end result. It's supposed to look just the other side of reality.

I think it's a bit too unsubtle to be just the other side, but it's great fun! The sky looks like you could sandpaper through ironbark with it. So surreal, makes me wonder what he's fishing for. Only weakness seems to be just above the sun, where it looks a little flat to me, with the same shade going upward through the cloud. Just darken the front edge and top a bit and it'll keep that 3D look. Cheers, Tony


5D and too much glass. Mamiya 645E.

I think it's a great image, but I would much, much prefer the original sky. The sun and stars don't work on the same page for me. Good editing though.


EOS 6D, 135L, 24-105L, Mamiya RZ67pro2 and lenses :cool:

I'd like to see the original too. Looks like a great shot without much help.

I like the idea, but I think if you had far fewer stars it work work better, maybe just a trace of them left in the upper-right or something. good job though!

Here is the original shot. I'm not sure if the exif came across so ... f10 @ 1/100 ISO 250.

Definitely surreal, and in a way quite mesmerizing. The bigger problem for me is the white halo on the calves of the fisherman, and the blotchy lower right corner. I also might try it without the red clouds in the stars, and go for a more natural sky. But one hell of an effort that's for sure.

It has a Disney feel to it;)
I love the actual photo! I think if it had the misty process , and the contrast that you did to the sky, this would be fabulous.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

I kind of like the first one with the mist but not the stars. The original is great as is IMO.


If you are going to walk on thin ice you might as well dance!

I agree a framer for sure with the mist.
