Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 28 December 2009 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

A piece of copper art from a recent exhibition held in the Bede's World museum in Jarrow, just a stone's throw from South Shields.

Apart from the vignette, the only other post production work involved cloning away a vertical stand in the centre to give the appearance of floating independently.

PENTAX K100D 1/90 second F/5.6 ISO 800 60 mm (35mm equiv.)

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Beautiful shot, looks like it'd make a really cool bracelet!!! One question, how are you doing the vignette, in color??????

28 Dec 2009 11:21pm

@Susan: That's an easy one Susan, make an elliptical selection with a large feather, then invert the selection, hit ctr j to set it on a new layer then make a levels adjustment on this layer to darken it considerably, then adjust the opacity to suit.

Marie-Jezaria from Paris, France
