The Solutionist

December 17th, 2010

This started out as a random idea with a lightbulb that wasn't really clear, but slowly expanded as I finished portions of the piece. Overall this piece was meant to be sort of inspiring.

Adobe Photoshop.

I like the singularity provided by the low area lit by the lightblub. Even the little plant inching up is a great touch.

There appears to be a sort of line behind the lightbulb, perhaps a leftover from merging the rendered image with a black background? When I tilt my view of my monitor, that line become pretty apparent. Not sure if there is a way to fix this or not...

That's actually a good catch, but I put the line there. To me the definite line in the background can mean several different things which is why I included it, but I don't plan on saying any of them because I really rather like leaving that up to viewer to interpret. Also, if you tilt your monitor and look more closely at the line, you should notice it fades completely away as you look farther from the lightbulb.

On a different note, this image was not rendered in any way. I made it 100% with photoshop and so if there is a detail that seems to stand out (or in that case, subtly be there), then I probably had a reason for it. Thank you for your comment!

Ferguson: that's the horizon, more or less.

Anyway, I like how this one captures my attention!

I think that the horizon may need to be made more obvious, meaning that I believe Ferguson's post is a good example showing how it can be misinterpreted as some kind of mistake or anomaly.

However, the only reason why I am saying this is because my original text was rejected. I originally said "I have no ideas for improvement" because I honestly don't, but then I got the message that says "Please write more about how this image could be improved and then resubmit". Heh.

And as you said yourself it can be interpreted in so many ways

is there any way I could see the .psd file , I would love to see how you have done this?

Such a great "conversation shot!" It's so well done. And if light bulbs existed during the late-Renaissance, Caravaggio would DEFINITELY have painted one in this exact fashion. I love Caravaggio. Kudos!

Wouldn't change a thing. I'm kind of a bright color/open view kind of guy, so this wont be a desktop for me. But for sure it is in my screen saver rotation!

What a cool pic. It's my new desktop as of five seconds ago. :p

I actually signed up just now just so I could comment. I Facebooked it as well.

Very nice...

I love this idea. A light bulb literally went off in your head when you thought of it I'm sure. :P

I have my brightness turned up pretty high and have a professional custom color calibrated screen. Everything above the "horizon line" is grey not black and was really distracting, but after I made it black it made it look a lot better in my opinion.

I don't know what it is about this picture, but I absolutely love it!

I wonder if it would possibily benefit from a tiny bit more light around the edges? Maybe, maybe not...
