Experiment time

Alpaca Helen did a photo which got me trying to think of abstract type images. ow I’m not too sure about it myself but as I posted on Helen’s thread saying I could have the same doubts as her, I’m putting my first effort here. I actually used iColorama for the first time in between Lightroom and SuperimposeX. Does it work? I dunno but I kinda like it

these were scaffolding poles on the ground and the title jumped out at me so i gave it the title.

I’ve only just realised but when viewing this full size on the iPad, I see the woman in black (like from horror film) lurking in there. Now I’m spooked!!,
Really like this Ric, nice one, although I can't see any woman in black :whistle:

I really like it! I can definitely see a face, and also a couple of what look like bird skulls. Spooky!

A step back into working with textures again. I’m not sure about SuperimposeX for this though. It seems you cannot use opacity settings for the masked which to me, gives a disadvantage over the able bodied affinity photo, which was used here along with Lightroom. As much as I hate photoshop on iPad, and it’s lack of editing compared to the above mentioned, it remains that for just layer blending, the stripped down version is still competing with affinity for layer work.

anyway, a very much work in progress……

Family Day Out.

( and it was blurred on purpose).

It reminds me of a still from an old family cine film (the cine film is old, not the family :lol:). I really like it.

HAAAA! thats the exact sort of feel I was trying to create. What I would really love is to be able to create all the old types eg hipsta using a editor after the photo is taken rather than the actual app when taking the shot.
thank you.

I thought you could import photos into Hipstamatic?

Experiment comparison.

using same texture as I wanted to see how SuperimposeX worked.
seems every time I do something in affinity, it spurs me to make SuperimposeX work at doing a similar job after all.

does it work as an image? I’m not so sure but just doing a pic of a dead crab didn’t seem that different to the norm, so experimenting

Now having seen the earlier duck photo, I notice the line down the left side. Is this an intentional addition? When I saw Crabby this morning, I assumed it was a seam in a glass panel and was actually going to suggest Healing it out. But now I suspect its either a Superimpose artefact or a layered one. Still love the image though!

Really? Thank you so much. The line is indeed intentional and the crab was found near a path on the local estuary. I wondered about healing it but i kinda liked it.
Ive just opened it up on a big screen and can appreciate it better. Still love it, the lines do work very well, I can see the horizontal one too now. The colours and the shading are wonderful. I'm a huge fan of old masters still life painting and this just sits so well with that vibe.

How did you get that close without getting your nose pinched? Wonderful photo!

The little critter was dead unfortunately but my puppy, Reu, decided he would stand guard while i took the image just in case of novement, he has a very unhealthy fetish for thinking crabs shouldnt have legs and pincers.

Really like the tones on this one, nice 'aged' image.
