PF Photo Contest - Photo Trip

    PF Photo Contest - Photo "Trip"

    I got this idea from MIH's contribution to my cropping thread:

    So the assignment is to take any picture you like and photoshop it to create something "trippy", something surreal/hallucinogenic, that has the atmosphere of the Beatle's song "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", or their animated film Yellow Submarine. Think: Magical Mystery Tour, think: "Because the wind is high, it blows my mind."

    If you like you can post both the original and then what you've done to it for comparison.

    Not really a contest. You can post as many entries as you have time to fool around with. Some people will be more into it than others.

    OK, here's a slightly modified image of a bald eagle. I shot the original picture from a distance of about 1/10 mile through a 5" SCT.

    Thanks. The 'scope I was using had a very solid mount and I had a pretty good location - the problem was the wind. This is the best shot I could get, because the shutter speed was a bit on the longish side due to the high f-ratio, so the pine branches were blurry in most pictures, or the eagle moved a bit and he was blurred. I shot a whole roll of film to get this one picture.

    Eat your peyote buttons, MIH, and tell me which which eagle picture is best colored "within the lines" :bugeye: :bugeye: :bugeye: They are practically identical!

    I think the visuals are from psilocybin.

    OK, MIH, you need to clean your plate and eat all the mushrooms now. You can save the peyote buttons until later, but you have to eat them before bedtime.

    Like OK, wow, they are so beautiful, and I don't know if there is some culture-fair definition of "within the lines" and if that is even right because we are all made perfect in the cosmic definition of beings-- like the unicorn said, so I dunno, I guess I will eat this last one and I will decide later.

    I am not much for photo chop'n but some times a photo gone wrong can come out sort of trippy.
