the end


This time your assignment is to find or compose a scene that conveys the essence of the end. There are many moments (or things or concepts) in our days, weeks, or lives that represent the end (finish) of something big or small. Do your best to make it recognizable to others what end your image represents.


What It Took:

I started with a inside picture of a railroad signal hose which had an interesting red color. I missed something interesting at the end of the hose (a spider would be great :-). So I combined it with a picture of a pedestrian tunnel.


Post processing of pedestrian tunnel: Brightened out some bikes and other pedestrians in the distance, GIMP photochrom effect (this boomed the contrast and the yellow tone)


Post processing of the hose: Extra contrast, rescaled to overlap with tunnel.

Combination: GIMP 60% tunnel (Normal mode)


I cropped the image so the tunnel floor ended in the corners of the photo and added a vignette.
