Goofing off in photoshop - what do you think?

I've never really played around much in photoshop so today I thought I would goof around a bit. I thought these few turned out pretty cool.

What do you think?

The fourth one is a perfect combination of quote and image -- each complement each other really well. The glee and fearlessness on Mo's face. I like the frame you made for it, too, the dark blue filter (or whatever it is.)

Thanks soz!

I've been thinking about the photo/quote (quhoto?)thing for a while and thought I would give one a try. Years ago, I made one for my brother using the latest in handwriting technology but I never revivied the idea computerwise.

Thanks nimh!

I was putting together a "war paint" essay about Mo and found myself getting more interested in body parts than in the photos themselves. That one was from the same series of photos as the bottom one but I just kept zooming in.

I think its cool how such familiar things can become so abstract just by looking at it in a different way.

I ordered some prints (number 1 & 2 on that cool metallic paper that I've never yet used) just to see how my beyond zit and wrinkle removing photoshop skill are.

Maybe they'll go in my portfolio.... maybe not.

I'd still like more feedback!

Don't be shy. If you don't like them, say so, I can take it.

Thanks stuh!

I think they look great in their real size. The site I stored them on for posting shrinks everything down to 250 kb. The original file sizes are way bigger and the images are much cleaner.

All of them are intriguing, but the second one is my favorite.

You have an eye for the unusual boomerang Smile

Thank you Calamity Jane!

I admit, I was a bit worried about what people would think of #2 just based on the reaction to the full frame image that others had seen. I'm really glad that the response here is better.

The full frame image of most of these is a bit more... pedestrian... than what you see here, not nearly so unusual. Today, it was just the little details that caught my eye and I had a lot of fun picking those details out and playing with them.

I like the fact that it is a black and white photo
with added paint. It gives the picture a nice touch to it.
Then again, I like black-white photos or opaque....

A friend of mine is also a photographer and she made
an abundance of black and white photos of my daughter
a few years back.

Here is my favorite http://www.borge.diesal.de/angel.jpg

Oh my goodness... Jane... she is so beautiful. I love that photo. Just gorgeous. Those sandy little fingers. I can smell the surf. Thank you.

I love black and white. It just seems to strip everything down it its essential elements.

Here is my favorite black and white of Mo - its a few years old but I still love it....

And what a precious "Gerber Baby" he is with his big eyes.
He's very cute boomerang, and the onset of a smile makes it all the more interesting. I can see why you like this picture so
much.

You're right, black and white pictures strip it down to
the bare essentials.
