The weather around here has been horrid, but I found the hole in the world.

A couple of photos I took at a Christmas festival at Kew Gardens.

Yeah, it's lovely. I'd probably have crushed the blacks a bit as your sky is mostly noise anyway but that's a great reflection shot.

I love the bokeh on the strung lights!

I had to stop drinking so I suddenly found myself playing less computer and having a ton of free time to take photos. I also started a blog. https://ultralightphotographer.com/

Dang, I was hoping you were taking those from an actual ultralight.

I stitched my first panoramic photo today.

That's really nice. How did you deal with the nodal point with such a short distance to the foreground? Do you have a panoramic tripod head?

They are actually taken from different locations. I was not happy with any of the shots and I clicked 4 photos and Lightroom stitched them together, there is a bit of a boundry warp happening right above the 61 on the first one. Here it is unwarped. You can see where the fence gets funky from the lack of info and Lightroom just deals with it. I like this version more, but most people like their photos square. So I guess it's not really a photo but a computer simulation of what it would look like. Either way I was really impressed with Lightroom's ability to stitch photos together.

Now that I know how powerful Lightroom is for stitching I can totally see how I would have done it differently. And taken like 20 shots to get the crap out of the waterline. Would have taken a vertical shot every 10 feet along it's side. Then again I like how this makes the bow look almost as huge as it is.

We had toured the USS Missouri two years ago and I felt like they had a lot more compartments open for this tour.  Certainly a lot more visitors to the Missouri. I'm not quite sure how long they will be able to keep the Iowa afloat given how few visitors they had. I mean really, if you can go to Disneyland or tour the Iowa what are most families going to pick? We just got into LA in the afternoon and spending $800 for park tickets or $100 to tour another battleship seemed like a no-brainer given the line lengths at Disneyland.

Took my Kiev 60 off to the wrong side of the railway tracks to shoot some urban stuff that isn't baroque stonework for a change.

Then, because my dog was with me, we stopped off in the park to play with a tennis ball as a reward for being patient.

Decided to teach myself something about Photoshop and fucking about with portraits. I was going to do a girl disappearing with ink-swirls into thin air but the source photos I had in mind suggested a more cyberpunk approach. As a result it was a whole lot more involved than I was planning on and I think I still fucked it up a bit.

There's no focal point to the image and you've spread the dissonance around too much.  I'd leave the face completely untouched, have the patterns just barely touching the edges of her skin, fading into being there.  The edges of her body are too visible and delineated, it makes her stand out from the background too much.  Maybe have the lower part of her body and just starting with her hands a bit fading into the background pattern noise more, while her head and shoulders are emerging from the noise, hence the patterns just starting to fade into existence around her face.  Background needs something, even a vague impression of structure, otherwise she just seems to be floating in space and with how defined her edges still are, it's not working.  I like the color bleeds with the reds, that works well, especially in a cyberpunkish setting.

NOTE : all this is how it's working for me, YMMV.  I don't necessarily have the skills to do something like this (I've not working on Photoshop in ages other than editing image size and color corrections), but I'd like to think I can describe what's "bothering" me about an image.

The background and squares rock. The effect works, but something seems off with the leg appearing half gone, maybe funk around with the opacity on her layer so it seems more transportery/ethereal.  Or do the disappearingness as a mask layer so it's easy to play with? Might also try duplicating her layer and bluring it with a glowy effect with low opacity.  Seems like you nailed it in the skirt area but the hair somehow doesn't work. It might just end up being the orange/blue contrast that's doing it. I think you are close.
