Gothic redux by horai Gothic redux by horai
A long time since I tried an photo manipulation, years in fact and the rust is showing.
Background is Ilam church in Staffordshire, lightning obviously hand drawn, monk is by kind permission of *Peace-of-Art

I just felt like creating something a little dark and gothic.

Should I make a wallpaper out of it I wonder.

It looks like a lot of emphasis is put on the monk at the grave. Tis sad.

Guess which tombstone I'm hiding behind. Quick!

The sarcophagus one near the corner of the church, the one on the left, it's slightly bigger and offers better cover.

Heh-heh. It's the hobby of hiding behind things when pictures are being taken. My friend is hiding behind the lightning bolt.

So you say this was made long ago...I'm thinking you should try it again. It's an interesting picture indeed.

No, this was recent but it's a hell of a long time since I last did any photomanip. Like you say though I should chill and try it more often. :D

good concept, but i think the image itself could be technically better (well, I am shitty in photomanipulation myself, so I must not complain...), the monk and lightning seems not to be apart of the pic. I think It would look a bit better if you put the saturation of the monk down and make the lightning a bit smoother and the surroundings of the lightning a bit lighter. i hope you can do something with that ;)
