Nicole - I'm not big on "creating" photos from multiple photos, but your shot might have me rethinking that!  Beautiful - thanks for the extra images and explanation...

Thanks--I've never done it before. I usually don't like it either--it's often just so cheesy to me. But--I couldn't get the image I saw in my head in any other way. It ended up being kind of fun, so who knows? Maybe I'll do more.

Composites aren't my thing either, but as photographic artwork they definitely have their place.

 

The difference in treatment in PP between the layers is what gives the pseudo-HDR feeling, I think.

You are right Nicole, it is better with the texture. :D

 

 

I've never had a problem with compositions as long as they are not portrayed as a single photograph. The stuff I do with them is drastic enough so you know it's a composition. High school kids love them.

So…I'm not sure what else this week holds for me photographically, so I'm going to post early again. This is the very first composited image I've ever done--I stayed up super late last night watching tutorials and working on it. Technically, the only part of this image that I took this week is the birds. :) But I did put it together within the specified time frame, so perhaps that helps qualify it. The clouds were part of an image I took last summer in Grand Teton National Park. The statue I found Sunday in a cemetery in a nearby city. The birds were from a quick visit to our local bird refuge last night. 

 

I put it together for another Project 52 assignment--we were to put together a CD cover for a string quartet featuring the music "Black Angels" by George Crumb (definitely not my favorite piece of music!). We were to show something about the music or about strings or quartets. And this is what I ended up with:

Now replace the birds bodies with violins.

Monday, I was strolling around the finish line of the Boston Marathon and managed to snap a few pics.  Of course, I had the fisheye lens with me.  Amazing sights and so many people!

Thanks! Yes, I felt strongly about making sure that all the components were mine. When I mentioned that I was having a hard time finding the crows or ravens I needed for the shot, one of my friends suggested that I just use a stock photo. The horror! (Actually, I don't have anything against people using stock photos--I just wanted this to be completely my work.) Also, I don't know if I would classify this as HDR. It is a composite, but I don't know that the composite has much to do with the dynamic range...

No I know it's not propper HDR - but it has that feel with the contrast - and it's certainly dinamic!

 

I snapped about 1000 shots over the weekend and here's my pick... choosing one proves difficult.

 

All taken with the D3200, 50mm 1.8 G lens.

All very well done, Mr_Leeman! I don't know if I could pick a favorite either...

For an entry level SLR, the D3200 makes some impressive images.

I sincerely doubt too may of the Nikon "experts" can really tell what body you are using most of the time anyway.

I would love to have one myself; then I would have three bodies to play with!

Holy moly!  You can see the texture on his legs in great detail--what the heck lens was that? Love the curving action of that top wing--very dynamic.

Sry I compressed the file down. It was a 73.9 mb tiff file and now its a 1.3 mb jpeg file.   :(  It doesn't look as sharp on here when you expand the picture. I used the Nikon 80-400mm today.
