Random Favourites


I had way too many images that didn't adhere to the regulations of DA in terms of size. Photography images are supposed to be 1280 max on a side so I went about downsizing all my grotesquely massive raw images. But I thought I might as well fix them all up too so put each into photoshop and shopped till I was happy that the mood, emotion or detail had been expressed in the best way possible. I also added a black border to each photo simply because I think it rounds it off, makes it look more complete and often more professional (when doubled with the correctly selected size). So yeah the images aren't just reduced to 1280 max, they have been downsized to the size I think they are displayed at best, some detail shots are left quite big (especially my newly submitted eye macro) whilst some are made quite small where detail is not as important and the quality wasn't that great to begin with. I have experimented with black and white modes on some of my Skipsea photography, I did this not just randomly but flicked between colour and black & white on certain images till I was sure b&w did the image the most justice and enhanced the mood.

Along with this I also revamped some of my graphics and earlier work such as my most fav'd and most commented piece: decay. If you feel any works looked better before or could be improved further please drop a comment on that deviation's page.

Oh and I think these new pieces and revamping are done in my good mood after finishing my AS exams which I think went fine as far as I know. I have an Art exhibition Friday which should be cool also where a lot of the work seen on here will be displayed on huge boards :)

The only downside at the moment is how crappy I'm feeling, I have hayfever and a severe mancold :sick:

Please recheck my work as some have been changed quite a lot and I think I can properly display them to their optimum effect now. Also see my new "trendwhore" style graphic which is currently featured, there is a lot of work out there similar to this that I have taken inspiration from but I have tried to make it my own and I am rather proud of the results. If you do view it please read the description and listen to the song I listened to throughout creating it. Thanks.

Wow, u have a real talent, i love the dark and moody shots. Have u thought about going into advertising or commercial photography? Ur moody ones like th one of the pigeon really reminds me of that photographer that came into poulters once. The footpath has movement - its hard to explain but its good.
