Alien architecture?

Uploaded: February 05, 2008 08:34:55

Description

This image is based on a photo I made last December in Hamburg Airport, Germany (to see it, look at the discussion of this photo). I used the Polar Coords (polarizer) effect in Gimp and then I cropped the image a bit and made some changes in the contrast, brightness and gamma of the whole photo.

Just install Gimp from www.gimp.org (it is free), open your image and then go to Filters ... Distorts ... Polar Coords and then select cirle depth 0 (if you want to get a quadrangular image).

Tiia- Wonderful use of effects. The difference between the original and this is so dramatic. Am glad you included both versions.
I love the title and my first impression was of some kind of shaft that your looking down into.
Lighting and clarity are excellent. Love the colors. The effects superb. Details outstanding.
Wonderful work.
Have a wonderful day, take care. #5448985

Tiia -- This is the first time I've seen this. Awesome work. Congrats on your win. Well deserved.

PS: Do you always use Gimp, or do you use Photoshop too?

Great job! #5744535

Tiia Vissak April 04, 2008

Thanks a lot!

I do not have Photoshop. I use Gimp for effects, MS Photo Editor for softening, sharpening, cropping and changing the image balance (Gimp can do it, too, but not as fast) and sometimes also MS Paint for collages and clearing everything from around an object.

Thanks a lot!

Go to www.gimp.org and download Gimp (freeware). Open a photo and find the Polar Coords effect from Distortions. Select the settings for applying it and then you should get something of this type. This effect takes the left and the right side of your photo and glues them together. Of course, it stretches the image while doing it, too.

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


 

The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.

You learn by doing. Take your Nature and Landscape Photography up to a new level of understanding in my new online class - on sale now.
