Pushed Pumpkins for Halloween

Postby minniev » Tue Oct 31, 2017 6:53 pm

A plain photo of some plain pumpkins pushed/tone mapped in Aurora HDR and blended in PS with a couple of filters from Topaz Simplify, plus texture. A Halloween play. For any kind of comment.

A Thanksgiving feast of textures, light and in-your-face color. Love the perspective and energy!

Thanks, Dave. They are a little "jacked up" in post, fiddling with new processes for the fun of it. Glad you like em.

Definitely in-your-face color,purposeful and confessed. It is an more extreme look than I usually go for, just for the fun of it, and the learning.

Definitely a very commercial image. I can see this on tote bags, jigsaw puzzle, holiday themed background and more.
I really like the pushed colors. Very vibrant and fits the theme well. :thumbup:

Thanks Duck. I never even think about commercial. Shows how valuable it is to get input from a broad group of folks with a broad group of experience.

I hadn't thought of that, but someone takes those images so it may as well be one of us! Neat! S-
