Retribution

Though the mills of God grind slowly,
Yet they grind exceeding small;
Though with patience he stands waiting,
With exactness grinds he all.

Thanks. :lol: This one was a real departure for me, but every now & then I guess you have to try something a little different.

Apop with post work in photoshop?

I resized it in Photoshop & did a little color enhancement in Photofiltre is all. I'm pretty Photoshop retarded. I started out with a script & then tweaked it, as for the color enhancement, I did add highlights, add shadows cuz I always do that to make 'em pop... but then I decreased it because it was too dark.

I had to work the color contrast because I had a real problem with this because of the dark contrasts, I'd originally done it in gold & black but the golds came out too muddy so I re-rendered it in the pinks & I liked it much better.

laurengary Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2008
Thanks Lauren. A LOT. I almost didn't post this because it's so dark, literally. :D And I had a lot of trouble with the colors because of the black spirals & the image seemed to want to take only the dark colors out of every palette, you know ? So I had to stick with limited colors & then blend them afterwards. I have a minor variation I'm posting today too called Disco Dancing. It's pink. =p

Oh yeah, I'm sending you a note.

Very cool Lauren!! I love the way the spirals increasingly fade and fragment from lower right to the upper left. The water drop just adds to the totally abstract flavor of the piece!! Very nice!! =D

Sort of Andy Warhol meets abstract meets fractals...and then meets Mr. Longfellow.

I like this combination of image and words.
