It started with five stars...

Uploaded: January 09, 2006


In the beginng I shot a capture of my stars-mobile...

In PSE3 and PSCS :
Added from diffent captures multiples stars into one, removed background and transformed it into a high-key capture then applied the flexify filter with black bg and transformed it into this :O)

o.s. raw mode- 1s - f/2.8 - iso 100 at 50mm with sigma dc 18-50 - handheld -no flash

Since this is a forum for "Constructive Critique" rather than just friendly praise ...

I'm not sure where the star burst is originating from. Perhaps move the center of the starburst to one of the stars. Also, none of the other stars have any streaking effect. I would like to see some starbursts coming from the other stars. I think that would add a great new dimension to the photo. #2272909

Hendrik Storme January 10, 2006

Quelle explication au-dessus;)
Bien fait Sylvia!Encore un autre Big-Bang!!!:)

Thank you Cathy, Tammy, Judy, Jeaneen, Jenny, Bill, Pat, Joanne, Dominique, Mary, Pam, Jonathan and Hendrik :o)
I really appriciate your lovely comments!

Jonathan, thank you for your honest're right..I was so amazed by the effect that gave the flexify filter to my capture that I didn't pay attention where the burst started. But I wanted only one burst point this time otherwise it would have looked like some captures I already made last month and I love to diversify my captures :O) #2273484
