I did a bit of work on this trying to make it look a bit like a set piece from a 1930's vampire movie. Quite a bit of dodging, curves and levels here. Made the decision to keep most of the noise/grain for atmosphere. Slightly toned for that aged look.

Moody, overdimentioned. Huge spaces and a very atmospherical feeling. Clever.

It is interesting to me that the light is what draws me into the depths of this abstract composition.

Ooh I like this one! Very dark and menacing...
Johnny Rasmussen12-Nov-2007 21:41
Hehe, ja du fikk sannelig til "vampyr" stemningen din :-) Artig bilde. Det skiller seg jo en del ut fra de fine naturbildene du vanligvis produserer. Jeg har sansen for slikt. Fint at man kan ta seg frihet til å skape litt "kunst" ut av bilden man tar. Det kan jo føre til gode resultater som dette!
