Stairway to ...............

I suspect this one might be a bit like Marmite.  Comments welcome - one way or the other.  :12_slight_smile:

I love it. It makes me wonder what's at the top.

Thanks for the comment Kate.  Originally aimed at being a print for hanging at home which I think would suit it more but I quite liked it as a digital image.

You have created a work of art here John.  Great stuff.

I like that a lot, I would prefer the walled area to be cleaner where the brown colour has been faded in. This is in the top left area. It really does look great though.

I like it, too - a very imaginative bit of processing.

 I may make two points

1) loose the vignette lets see it without please, the walls look to be cream, if you need to dodge/burn or clone of marks I think it would look so much better than the vignette.

2) 2nd step is slightly off horizontal, as it is in prime view I wonder if the image might benefit from pulling bottom left with the distort tool in PS or maybe just a slight rotation if you are not using PS.

BUT -I realise the vertical is vertical which is why I suggest the distort tool. Also removing the vignette might not make the step so 'in your face' so no.1 might cure no.2.

Finally - An interesting image that in general I really like, thanks for showing it.

Thanks all for your comments.  As I said, This was an attempt to produce something that would look right on the wall.  It hasn't got there yet. :12_slight_smile:

Jaqui, I know what you mean but I wanted a totally abstract image for the above reasons.

Colin.  I totally agree with you wrt the perspective corrections.  I ended up having to use Warp to achieve something near, but the absence of the vignette, to me, makes the image look a bit mundane.  I have reprocessed it and posted it below.  See what you think.  (the walls were grey BTW)

For me the original post is the better.

steps.jpg.df2d6dab209a35d9452c9817e0155012.jpgI think you need to push the curves on that second one John

I did wonder rather than the light vignette if you pushed the slider the other way you might see more texture, as you have 'yes' ticked on edit I thought I would go, but we all see things different.

Thanks Colin.  I have no problem with edits.  I think your version is a tat over saturated but I think a little more contrast might benefit my second version.  However the point of the negative vignette was to try and produce a more arty feel because as I said originally, printing and hanging this as a print is what I had in mind.  I'm still waiting for permission. :(

..........and I think you have achieved the arty feel in the original. It's a very nice work for me.

the edit was more about the vignette and a 5 min edit before I went over to Lincoln, I wasn't really referring to colour but I have desaturated the image.
