Title: Which would show better
Post by: wmchauncey on January 01, 2014, 08:06:59 am
I have several of these BIF images that have been photo-merged.
Would the merged image show better than would a grouping of the individual images.

I think they're both work.

The single is a superior image, in my mind. No matter how it became one, it just is: beautiful.

In the early 50s, in Scotland, there was a home decoration phase described as the wally duck (stamper will correct the local spelling if I blew it) where porcelain ducks of varying dimensions would be arranged on a single wall in a sitting room. That's what the second, multiple duck image reminded me of immediately...

And by the way, happy new year, stamper.

I agree with Rob. Even with the pushed color saturation it's beautiful.

It sounds like my goal would be to PP both methods and go from there...thanks for the accolades guys!       ;)
