Absolutely wonderful! Ah, the whiteness, and yet the contrasts that make out the different lockers/doors. I love your entire gallery, I should probably put a fave on every piece!

Great composition! The bright spots don't detract that much either...

It's terrific! A bit somber, because for some reason it reminds me of something like "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest"... not sure why.

Truthfully one shouldn't use the burn, blur and sponge tool on photoghop. They tend to eat and creat pixelization if you ask me. The gradient tool isnt a bad way to escape the over contrasts, it actually can make it look more natural, yet in this picture its ok for bleached spots. You can only get so far with white. Where did you take this picture? In a hospital? It scared me at first how white everything is but now I actually like it. Something to keep me awake.

Yeah, I decided against the burn tool. Once in a while, blur is useful, as is dodge, but none of them had any use here.
I actually took this in my school, the Peabody conservatory. The doors on the left are all practice rooms ;) Glad I could aid in your insomnia, and thanks for the comment! :)

Reminds me of the hallway in the Matrix movies. :matrixfight:

Thanks so much. Some of the looks I got while shooting this were great--"You're taking pictures of the hallway!?" :D

Bah, the exposure is great. Burn the hotspots a bit and you're in business! I love the composition; good eye, Joe. :-)

Hmm...thanks, but I'm not quite sure what you mean by "burn the hotspots." *ducks away from the fast flying tomatos*
This one was yet another Physics inspired shot. I'll be doing my homework, start thinking about what else I could be doing, see a shot, and quit my homework. Such is life :)

Oh, I guess you're not acquainted with the burn tool in PS (it's ok...I know what it is, but I really suck at using it!). It's the hand icon right next to the blur tool and right under the gradient tool. It basically reduces the reduces the exposure in certain places. Play around with it a bit... and when you're done, teach me how to use it! :-)

I suck at it too, I've played around with it many times since you left this, and I could never get it to look right. Sorry, no PS lessons today :)

I really enjoy the colours and lightning... It really kicks! I'm learning how to use my new Pentax, and I think I will try this kind of shots! Thanks for the inspiration!

I wish I had a Pentax. Or anything good for that matter. :) Thanks for the compliment, I'm glad I could be an inspiration

beauty. although 1/3 sec kind of overexposed it a bit, was that intentional?
Reply
:iconclarinetjwd:
clarinetJWD Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2005
Yes, it certainly was intentional. I really should've done it a little more, just to make that more clear, but then I lost the contrast. Thanks for the comment :)
