Within the Nik Silver plugin for your photo editor of choice there are a ton of options, lots and lots of different things with which to adjust your image. Some of these are mere tweaks (apart from the removing color). Some are very subtle, for instance you can adjust the “film” setting. You can give the effect of Kodak film (amongst others) if you wish.
And then in contrast to the subtle effects you can go crazy.
I find crazy interesting, not least because you can change a photo so completely it becomes its own thing. But I find crazy interesting because I wonder if crazy = good. Obviously this is always going to be subjective, and I tend to create these images for me first and my loyal band of subscribers second.
But I am always keen to find it if it is just me that likes an image or whether other folks like them to.
This image is a reworking of THIS picture. And while the original version is “just” a picture from the top of the Wrekin, this is its own animal. To my mind it seems very sinister, but I wonder if that is a feeling it evokes in others.
So thoughts and opinions please.
Thanks for looking.
