Tritons Wrath by toteZitrone Tritons Wrath by toteZitrone
My latest and first really complexe photo-manipulation, made as a Wallpaper for [link]

Because someone asked me to, I put the original horse picture (in a smaller version) here [link]

I also was asked to declare, that the pictures I used where taken by myself (:

Yeah, thx!
Actually Triton is Poseidon's son, so you're quite right. I was inspired by the Pony I ride which's name really is Poseidon. :D

good job....you might consider painting onto the forelock...it looks plastered into place.Otherwise good job blending and making the horse look like it actully standing in the rock :nod:

Thanks a lot, I really appreciate your comment. And you're right, the hoof is a bit messy. If I find the PS file I might edit it. I'm glad you like tha way it stands in the rocks. That was my aim but many people claimed the "cut off hoofes" as a mistake. =( ;)

I searched for a way to integrate the signature mor in the pic without ruining it. I just motion blurred it and I use this technique quite often now for signatures (:

alright,so all you did was smudge and blurred it?

Gorgeous. I think it's interesting how you took a photo of a horse from a dry, dusty environment and put it at the water's edge. I was surprised to see the original photo - your manip-ed version looks so fluid!

I think the filter is a bit too overwhelming, I guess you've added it to create an underwater effect ? But I think it decreases the quality of the manipulation,Especially on the horse. I like the composition, but the big splash looks a bit weird, it looks like it comes out of the rocks. The eye of the horse is really well done, but I don't get why you didn't remove his halter. Also the tail and mane could be better, the tail seems to fade away and his forelock looks too cutted out. I think the head looks also a bit too sharp on the edges. His hooves seem to fade away in a rocky underground, and that's a bit unrealistic. Overall, I like the composition and the colours but I think you still have to pay a bit more attention to the details :)

Thank you for your comment. The sharp edges of the head are one point I recognized already, but was to lazy to change it afterwards. My fault ofcourse. (=

Looking to your other mentioned points I think we might have a bit different idea of the picture. At first I didn't want to show an underwater scene, the effects I applied should just give it an unsual, not boring look. I see this picture more as a "might be" painting of a horse on a cliff, where water splashes up. For this reason I didn't remove the halter. Because this shouldn't be a realistic picture of a wild horse I think this halter isn't disturbing. Especially not because it's a detailed show-halter to "decorate" the horse. Perhaps this is a problem of the old halter or no halter question in equine photos. Perhaps this doesn't become clear and I should have used the splash better? The fading hoofes I individually can't see. For me it looks like they are stuck into the rocks. Perhaps this also just becomes clear, because I know what I wanted to show?

So please don't missunderstand me. I don't want to find crappy excuses to deny that the manip isn't perfect, there are just some points I personally don't agree with you / can't see like you. But ofcourse I won't stop thinking about them and check them out in my next manipulation ;)

Because of a whish of another commentor I uploaded a small version of the original horse picture and linked it.

Well ,that's true, when I look at a manipulation I first see the technical aspect, so that's my bad! And well, I don't know actually about the halter, the horse looks quite wild actually, especially in combination with the waves, and then the title 'tritons wrath' made me think it was rather a fantasy manipulation, so that's why I didn't appreciate the halter.

For the painted look, I really didn't see that, but I would suggest smudging the horse and putting another effect over the background, but that's just my opinion :)

And your right, horses are no hobby, they are passion, no matter if you are a rider or just a "fan" (=

Right. I used several filters and layer blend modes with different opacitys after I matched the colours and levels of the different elements.
