I've posted a similar shot to this before, but I wanted to free those gondolas from their wires.View this larger here.
Shot of the dayElectrolite
They look like parachuting gondolas. Very cool. I like the blue and the vignetting.
:) i agree with previous comment :D
great shot. amazing. but it doesnt look safe to get in one of them, innit?
Really funny post processing there. Great colors..
It is amazing how just removing a few little lines can destroy all sense of reference. Great idea and well executed.
How excellent. It still has me sitting here chuckling like a fool.
Do you ad the vignetting in post or is it a result of light dropoff in your lens? I've added it using lens distortion in PS CS2, but the color doesn't seem as rich as in your photos.
brilliant concept - clean picture with a strong graphical composition - really appealing shot
Oh, freaky and quite funny. Very cool result.
yes getting rid of the wires was a vey good idea, looks great.
Amusing image, and great color saturation. Good positioning of the gondolas as well. I like it!
Some how it reminds me of Mary Popins :-)
nice one !!
brilliant, really love the summer feel going on.
really enjoy the contrast between the reds and blues! I definitally get the feeling that they are rising as apposed to falling like others have mentioned. Great work ;)
I am seeing all sorts of unique shots this morning. Very nice colors, as always, and very neat processing idea!
Awesome shot! I love the colors. And it is a great idea to loose the cables. Excellent.
Those teeny parachutes seem to work ok, very funny image.
:D nice idea!
Thanks everyone, I removed the wires in PS and also moved the gondolas slightly so they weren't in such an obvious line with one another.
Anthony, I create vignettes using a duplicate layer blended with multiply, then, with a layer mask added, I use the circular gradient tool to mask out the centre area, leaving this darker vignette effect around the edges. This only really works on images with dark edges, since the multiply blend won't darken light areas; but for skies like this, where the blue is nice and 'thick' already thanks to a polarising filter, it works well.
this is such a cool photo.. it reminds me of the elevator flying around in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.. hmm, I just realized I keep mentioning the movie in different comments, in different photos, & in different blogs.. perhaps I'm still craving chocolate.
Love the dpeth of the blue sky. Gorgeous!
Very very cool. Nicely thought and very effective. Nice touch of humour.
(I think I can see jpg artifacts though... )
My first visit and you are bookmarked! I love the idea behind this and the way you have shot and processed it superb.
This is really phenomenal! I love the whole surreal feel in the shot.
wow, miles, removing the wires was a very creative idea. i don't think I've ever seen someone try something like this... very original! :)
on another note, i read you comment about adding a duplicate layer for the vignette... did you know you can achieve the exact same effect by creative a new adjustment layer (levels, curves, etc) with no changes in the adjustment? you really cuts down on file size and makes your workflow a lot faster
great photo as always!
I had a dream like this once. Very cool.
incredible conception and execution!
cool shot. I like it.
Thanks again :)
