photoblog image Confusion


The contributions recieved yesterday were very much appreciated and most of the comments were very much along the lines of as long as it's not for commercial use. Which in my opinion is very valid. So thank you very much guys.

After I processed this one I liked it so much that I would love to post images of this nature more often. This means that I need to shoot more often and depend less on my archive for good shots. This shot is a bit cliche (the radial blur), I know but I didn't want to show something that was too ordinary. You either like it or you don't.

I will have to agree with Etomi comment. It works for this theme- Alice in wonder land.

Alice facing a whirlwind of chance.

This is great work - well done.

As far as using for commercial - there is the sharing thing to do as well as the greedy one. Do the sharing - it can save you a lot of cost and create opportunities in the long run.
Jide Alakija: I'll try my best Louis. Thanks.

Radial blur's a good choice. Prefer this to yesterday's, nice one.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Jamey.

There's some darned clever work going on here. I won't ask how you did it because I don't want to try it myself just yet, but the results you've achieved are very impressive,
Jide Alakija: Actually Colin, the work was done for me, the cards were all up in the air before I got there. I just corrected the colour balance and applied a "masked" radial blur.
