thank goodness for cosplayers, or else i wouldn't have had the sources to do this.
Check sbs for background source image taken from my own stock.
Considering the images i used are not actually of the real batman and joker, i don't see any copyright infringement..and all the sources were up for creative commons.

I'm sure there are a few things i could fix, and would like constructive critiques to help me improve the image. Other than that, i really enjoyed making this one. (5 years and 1464 days ago)

Source 1 (batman) doe's not work..

author says:

thanks for the heads up. link is fixed now.

Looks great ....the batman source seems ok.... but unfortunately the only problem is that the Joker source has already been manipulated by Sabbath photography who posted it on Flickr.

author says:

Aside from the frame (which seems to be on a lot of stock photos) how else was it manipulated? The color and levels get adjusted on A LOT of stocks, so can't tell me that. And I am just trying to clear it up, no offense meant.

The author comments its a noise experiment.....not just the color and levels.

author says:

Thanks.
After much consideration and searching for another suitable source, I haven't found anything worth using for the joker. And now that this has been pulled, I likely won't be fixing that issue.
Adding noise to a photo in photo contests isn't considered "manipulation" as long as its applied to the whole image, yet using a source in a chop that has noise added to it is considered a premanipulated source. And more funny, but I had to take all the noise out tomake it half decent in the chop. It really doesn't make sense.

author says:

CHECK SBS for update on source of the JOker... i did correspond with sabbath photography, and found how they did the source.

adding noise is not a manipulation in the rules of the photography side of pxl, and there fore shouldn't be seen as manipulation when it comes to sources for chops. it is part of post processing, not manipulation.

Well done Author!

Moderator says:

Rules allow minor adjustments of color to a source image. Noise is considered a manipulation because pixels are altered in the process. Since the noise adjustment was the only change made it is considered a small adjustment and it has been decided to be acceptable for this application.
Images are reviewed individually to determine the level of manipulation, every effort is made to be fair in these evaluations. If you have a doubt about a source choice you can ask a moderator before posting your entry.

Pretty good, but try to make the figure stand out from the background.

author says:

That would kinda defeat the purpose of trying to make it look like a photograph. Do all people just "stand out" in photos? Just sayin'...

avatar JPDesigns
JPDesigns says:

I understand what you are saying author, and I don't understand why there are - points on what you said, but I also understand CMYK because if the girl stands out you can see the source better. But if you are wanting to make it look like a realistic photograph, then you did pretty well I would add a little more shadows to the body then because she does look pasted into the photograph.

The execution. - created by Nickk


The execution.
Favs: 1SBS: 9Hi-resRank: 14/14Score: 52.9% (0)5789 views

The World war two was a horrible time. Many people were executed for small, or for no reasons.

Luckily it's over now. But we shouldn't let it ever happen again !

That's cruel! Different sources were brought together quite smoothly and you paid some attentions to the detail such as changing the colors on the house. However, I have some suggestions for you:
1. If you want to focus on the two people and the house, they should be the main objects, so their shapes, colors, etc. should be noticeable compared with the environment. Consider that, the sky and the fire should be more desaturated and brighter in color, you can also blur them slightly to make the better depth (including the road and the hill).
2. Applying the motion blur is a nice touch but your choice of object is not right. The flight is so far away from the ground, so their movement is slow compared to other actions or movements on the ground and close to the camera. The camera has to capture the image within several seconds to see that effect, but in this case, the remaining parts of the image will be overbrighten and almost nothing will be seen. Just apply that filter to something close to the camera and move very fast compared with the others .
3. Let see the shadow of the house, it's sharp, so the shadow of the soldier should be the same .
Hope that my comment is helpful to you. Good luck!

I like this entry very much author...idea is maybe a bit cruel but that was our history, and we never should to forget all horrors that war brings...and now for the execution,i like almost everything...only one thing bothers me...sky is to blue compared with the ground...i know is to late now but for some other entry's u could create some color adjustment layer above all other...in this case maybe, dark brown color layer and maybe gray/blue soft light layer with low opacity...u always could try with some colors, never know how the things will turn up...Best of luck for u...

"The Dogs Of War"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLbeAdpzy8Q&feature=related

Dogs of war and men of hate
With no cause, we don't discriminate
Discovery is to be disowned
Our currency is flesh and bone
Hell opened up and put on sale
Gather 'round and haggle
For hard cash, we will lie and deceive
Even our masters don't know the web we weave
One world, it's a battleground
One world, and we will smash it down
One world ... One world
Invisible transfers, long distance calls,
Hollow laughter in marble halls
Steps have been taken, a silent uproar
Has unleashed the dogs of war
You can't stop what has begun
Signed, sealed, they deliver oblivion
We all have a dark side, to say the least
And dealing in death is the nature of the beast
One world, it's a battleground
One world, and we will smash it down
One world ... One world
The dogs of war won't negotiate
The dogs of war don't capitulate,
They will take and you will give,
And you must die so that they may live
You can knock at any door,
But wherever you go, you know they've been there before
Well winners can lose and things can get strained
But whatever you change, you know the dogs remain.
One world, it's a battleground
One world, and we will smash it down
One world ... One world

Scary lyrics, but very nice chop to tell the story. Nice combination of the elements, they're simple, but make a profound statement.

avatar cabldawg71

very good idea Author. Dogs of war is a fav .
Good luck to you this is one opinion of why this song was written.
This song is about war on the highest level, the political level. The dogs of war describe how politicians orchestrate wars that the public does not know about. The song also suggests that the major influence behind war is money. This song was written about the covert wars of the 80's where millions of American dollars went to Afghanistan to fight the Soviet Union.
