Poor photocopier yes indeed.. we smashed this thing up as it need to be thrown in the skip and it was jolly fun. I couldn’t resist the photo opportunity with all the toner ink splattered around it..

I went for a very rustic and textured process here.

Sorry once again for my absence my Uni dissertation is taking up a great deal of time… Hope you like this though i have mad a special effort to get it out as i not posted for a while.

Barn door and coke

coke-and-door

Coke manages to get everywhere especialy in third world countries. I do like and enjoy coke but did you know that if a kenyan had the choice of buying a shoelace that he needed or a coke he or she would buy a coke. i cant quote that but i was told by someone that that was the case. I think the problem is that they do make a huge amount of money but i cant see the money being put back in. Maybe i am wrong but that is the case at least from the outside.

I liked the barn door as it had some subtle detail that was quite catching.. also the contrast to that of the Coke ad.

Beauty is not always clear. Which one.

I have been working on a few images this evening from my holiday in diani. This is one image that many would maybe discard… but i figured i would give it a chance…
Here’s the original.. as i took it…. coming to look at it again i do actually like it how it is but i did some editing and tweaking…

Below is what i came up with first time round… its a desaturated with the hue changed to make it look more like moon light… there is also a layer blend going on here that makes it a bit softer..

After a wee bit i decided to go for a cropped down version of the images and then really wanted to make things look really pixelate and soft… the bottom one here is the one i have put on my photo blog… http://trcwest.com/photoblog/
I think that it works best as it compliments her physic a wee bit more…

Just a bit to harsh but the colours are nice…

So a few questions…. 1) which one do people like?? 2) what effect works best?? 3) who do you think it is??
Please take the time to comment… i would really appreciate it.
