ok folks,
this photo has been severely color altered as i am sure you know. it is not a straight up photo of a wild art painting.
this photo is the reflection of sailboat masts reflecting in the water behind the aquarium near pier 39 in san francisco. there is a quiet bench back there to shoot from. the colors at the top are the results of shadows being cast in various angles (approx 4:30pm) and intensity. when i first started shooting this series ... i was really after the appearance of lightning. after getting back to the hotel ... i kept driving up the contrast in the photos and then tried making the photo into a negative. once a negative i then flipped the rgb channels to get this result.
this is very easy ... it just sounds more complicated than it is. i could show you how to do it in less than a minute ... explaining it just sounds like you need to be prefoming the brain surgery rather than be like me (laying on the table).

Love them. Water, light, sky, and other objects just compose the most interesting pictures I can think of. I've got a folder or two of water pictures, but I always wonder if onlookers think I'm nuts, just staring at the water and shooting away.

I have photochopped for 10 years. It may have been easy to do but you did it and shared your vision. I opened your blog and gasped in delight. You also gave me several more ideas on how to play with my photos. Thanks.
