Cofa Gateway 1002 starts here :)
Takin something, then doing something to it, doing something else, and ending up with something.
What’s in store for me in the direction i don’t take?
“… the moments when everything is open, when all options are present, and all is undecided – mere destinies unfolding. Our choices shift into one plane of existence, the extension of every path still available, until we pick the red tie instead of the blue; harbor anger instead of compassion; attempt to fix it or break it; and all our possibilities collapse into the singular of what is, rippling outward from the moment of decision to affect our lives in ways unknown… The noise at the back of our mind wondering anxiously, What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?”
Experiment: using editing techniques to place my futuristic city into different landscapes
For my fourth iteration I used all the editing skills I have learnt throughout this assignment to place my futuristic city skyline into 3 different landscapes making it look as realistic as possible.
In order to make the city look realistic within different environments I applied many editing effects such as distorting the image and changing the contrast, opacity and hue. For example within the snowy landscape I applied cool colours and reduced the contrast, while in the sunset landscape I increased the contrast to the point of creating a silhouette of the city. I also experimented with creating a reflection on the water surface by duplicating the layer of my city and flipping/ reversing the image to create a mirrored reflection. I then used various filters and reduced the opacity to create a realistic looking reflection.
I am very happy with the outcome of this iteration and I think it shows the progression and improvement of my editing skills using Photoshop.
