Literature Books

This stack of literature books lay on the third floor burned and rotting.


Hmmm tryings something a little different here. This is not an HDR image, but some manipulation in photoshop.

    Looks like you used a blurred background on this. Whatever you did it makes everything look so fragile and delicate as if these items would just melt through your fingers if you would try to hold them. It also looks like there is a black hole in the center where everything is swirling around. As if everthing will be sucked in and disappear at any moment. Great suspense. I also see an eye in the center. A watchful eye that seems to ask, "Do you see what you've done?"

    A very poignant shot.

    Great compo and really cool pp. Again... Very sad it's about books.

    terry and daisy, lens blur is from the lens I was using (see tags) and most stuff added to image was done manually with brush tools. I know these images aren't off the chain, but I'm trying to make the most out of trashed books! LOL!
