Wonderful image, Thomas. Nice job. #40112

Joann Tompkins-Winborn

Fabulous lighting- love the affect it has on the overall photo. The red is so-o-o L.A.! Please explain how you did this. Is it a composite of different photos? What, if any, program did you use? Thanks for sharing and God bless you and yours. #118150

Thomas McConville

Hi Joann, this image is about 8 different layers. It was made up from three separate images, the freeway, the skyscrapers, and the sunset. I then duplicated the skyscrapers twice and and changed their perspective here and there. I used Photoshop elements. Wish I had the monye to get PS 7, need some tools in there. Thanks for your comments. #118188

Thomas McConville 10/17/2005 11:44:25 AM

thanks darren also thanks for the gimp info, I got photoshop cs now , but im always open to try new software...especially if I can squeeze more data/quality out of an image with it. I pretty much like photoshop though, its been my mainstay since the begining #1961660

Stephanie F. Liverman 10/25/2005 8:02:13 PM

Truly Amazing Work! I'm a beginner and just starting to play with digital manipulation and it's a BLAST! I also have PS Elements and can't imagine having MORE options for 'tweaking' pics. Congratulations on your win! #1998918
