I'm Home

September 20th, 2009

As the days are getting shorter and the wind is howling in your ears, you probably noticed that autumn is not far ahead. Therefore, it's a good thing to have a place called home!

Very nice! Saw this one in the Loupe, and it was awesome, as with all your shots. :D

I like. I don't know how many more sunsets/sunrises I can take... But I like. Especially considering that you've shot this scene in such a fashion as the focus in more upon that on which the sun is setting, as opposed to the sun's setting itself. What I mean is: I like how this photo draws you to the silhouette of the house, swing set (not to mention the kid in mid-swing - nicely done) and that full, unique tree. Personally, I don't find myself focusing on the sunset at all, which - if that was your goal - is a intriguing way to shoot one.

I caught the kid at the apex of his swing also. What a nice touch. I completely agree with Trout's observations.

Is it possible that Macindows set the timer on his camera, crossed the lake, raced up the hill and plunked himself on the swing?

I really love the colors. I'd say more, but let me just say that I downloaded this one without even thinking about it. It's really beautiful.

Every little detail counts!

Beautiful sky and water. I'm curious what the original(s) of this looked like and if several of the trees, the house, or the swing were even in it? Looking closely at a majority of the trees you can see that they are, in fact, the same tree.

Regardless, the end result is beautiful.

Wow, Esposizi, I might not have caught that if it weren't for your comment, but you're totally right, they are all the same tree. How the hell did you make this? Is the sky from one photo, and then the trees and house are added in and then you used some reflection effect as the water?

Whatever you did, it's impressive and is very difficult to distinguish from reality. Excellent work!

Thanks for your comments!

Of course, your professional eyes were right! ;-) This picture has been photoshopped. I don't want to destroy the illusion of the scene so stop reading if you don't want to take the red pill.

First of all I created the hill, added a new layer of grass on top and started adding trees from the left to the right. After putting the house on top of the hill, I added details like the fence, laundry waving in the wind etc. Then I put one of my newer sunset pics to back and flattened the image. To create the reflection I used a very useful tutorial for displacement water. If anybody is interested, feel free to ask me for the link. Okay, now you know the truth! :-D

I love this composition! I think you did a very good work with that sunset! The only thing I don't like is the oversaturation of the sunset on the left, but it doesn't distract me too much so keep your wonderful work!

It doesn't matter of it's photoshopped - what matters is that it's a stunning picture that instantly worthy of being used as a wallpaper (that's why we're here, right?).

I love it. And it's in 2560 res. Yay! It was downloaded and in my wallpaper file before I even read the comments.

Is it just my screen, or has it been painted in brown, and not black, by accident? :\

It's a beautiful image otherwise, but it seems like you've tried to spray in with black, which would be great... if it was actually black. :\

@Lerch84:
That's weired. I really should calibrate my new monitor, coz I didn't even touch the saturation of the background.

@Actias Luna:
I actually uploaded an updated version right after I submitted it to IFL but it seems that it has not been replaced. Do you want the updated version via email or should I upload it to my homepage?

@Actias Luna: Yeah, I noticed that too. I thought it was a really sloppy mistake, but when I download the file and opened it with an image editor (GIMP), it is next to invisible. Only by looking at the histogram can you see the telltale, not-quite-black spike. I find my own pictures often look really different between Windows and Ubuntu Linux. It's really frustrating spending a lot of time getting the colors perfect only to find something isn't calibrated correctly.

Perhaps a pro could give a tip on how to make sure colors look the same in all programs, web browsers and OSs?

I am impressed with your images. They are great, sharp until the last point of sharpness. Thank you for posting this in the IFL. Congratulations.

@Macindows, maybe it's a problem of my screen because that yellow is very intense, almost unreal! But i'm glad to know you didn't retouch the photo :)..I noticed that brown line, but it is almost invisible!

p.s. I hope your "Break of dawn" will be voted and submitted, because it is simply stunning!
