Hi All!
I understand that not all of you rec'd my msg, the end of Nov. I'm sure it was some error on my part.

I had surgery, recoverying now. But, can't pickup my camera, ugh! Typing is a difficult challenge. So, my posts will be limited.

During my recovery, I watched many tutorials. This was one I was able to do ..... (like took forever, lol).

Don't feel like you have to critique, I just wanted to get a post into the club.

Michael Kelly level-classic 1/26/2012 1:20:29 PM

Carlin so glad to hear you are on the mend!

This is another amazing digital darkroom shot. You seem to be the master of these techniques. I really like what you've done with this! I don't think it needs any critique other than to say it is really well done and I enjoy it.

Well I sure can't wait to see what you can do when you have two hands....very cool effect and the stars really add to the composition by filling in the void. I hope you heal quickly! :~) #9949048

Looks like y ou are going for the gold again Carla. Great image #9953650

Debbie E. Payne 1/29/2012 10:49:12 PM

You have the "Midas" touch, Carla. All I can say is, "Wow, and Wow again. This is just amazing. Take good care of yourself and get well quickly. I do know from past experience that when you can't pick up your camera that editing is the next best thing. It saved my sanity nearly two years ago when I broke my shoulder in four places. But my editing work was never this good! Take your time, but one of these days, let us know what you did to get this. #9954733

Robert Jensen level-classic 1/30/2012 12:38:25 PM

Ellen H. Robertson level-classic 1/31/2012 6:47:00 PM

This is totally amazing. Is it poster size yet on your son's wall? #9958174

Peter W. Marks 2/1/2012 4:27:55 AM

Good morning Carla. Of course I really meant "I can NOT even see something like this in my mind........" Typos, typos, typos! I so wish BP would allow one to edit responses as some other forums do. Of course the remedy is in my own hands (pun intended!)and to just slow down and co-ordinate my brain and fingers! Of course I could even proof-read before clicking on the 'submit' button but what would life be without occasionally 'leaping before I look'? Ho, hum! #9958822

Dale Hardin 2/1/2012 7:33:32 AM

Peter, there are third party spell checkers out there that allow you to highlight any text in any program and spell check it.One example is called Iespell. #9959051

G'day CARLA!

My blazin' brazen congratz for the EP.

I saw a similar firey motorbike image at my camera club meeting tonightBut believe you me it has nothing on this flaming piece of work. Excellent PS work kiddo.

Dennis #10107485

Carla Capra level-classic 4/24/2012 7:50:08 AM

Ah, Dennis, my friend, I was wondering if you'd visit my flaming motor cross imagery. It is an image of our boy, one he enjoys and he's asking for a poster to hang on his wall. Thank you. #10107497

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


This was so fun, like painting with light or flames. I watched a basic video tutorial and adapted it in this DD imagery of my son's racing shot.
