jamesy from christchurch, New Zealand

wow beautiful how nice that this is fun for you I think for me it would be hard work

12 Jan 2010 5:21am

@jamesy: Most of the work is done with a preset in Silver Efex Pro. Then I diddle with a few sliders. This one didn't take more than 15 minutes. I do very little any more that requires a lot of processing work.

jim from sebastopol, United States

this is a very cool shot. i love the complexity added by the ripples. did you shoot it in BW?

12 Jan 2010 5:33am

@jim: Thanks. I shot it in color and applied a preset in Silver Efex and then moved a few sliders. When I play around like that, I don't remember exactly what I did.

I was tempted by that plugin, but I thought it was kind of pricey for what it did. NOW, I'm not so sure. Nice work!

Intricate but the composition around the circles brings clarity to the reading and viewing. The treatment you added has definitely brought out the essence of the vision.
I like it very much.
