You've found an interesting subject with the cast iron man, I like the different approaches you have made. I personally think I prefer this to the sunset version; it reminds me a little of Close Encounters!
hi mathew. am only a novice with a camera. i have come across the likes of yourself and many other fantastic photographers on this website.i dont even know what photoshop is! i must learn.my philosphy at thisstage is .... see an image ... take a pic... see what happens.i hope you like some of my pics... one of which the illuminated man has won a competition on I.T.V weather! its good to share our photos and see others comments. thanks very much.
That's a great philosophy to have, you will find yourself walking around looking at scenes differently and picturing the results in your mind.
A good starting point for image editing and correcting things like your slightly sloping horizon is Picassa - this can be found at google.com. It's freee and has some handy tools, although it isn't the best editor you will find.
There are also a coulpe of threads on the forum about how to take a great picture. Worth a read.
I'm with Matthew and Eduardo on your illuminated man series: I like this one most. And I very much like your philosophy!
This does look like a still from a science fiction movie.

OK, THIS is the best of the Illuminated Man shots. So far. I like your approach. I find that some pictures seem to just jump into my camera without my having to do much. Others take hours of shooting and fiddling in Photoshop. Usually, the best ones are the ones that take the least work.
I really like your illuminated man series! I bellieve it's a Iron statue right?
It inspires me to use my girlfriend as a model to do a shot like this one! on totally back light of course ;)
really great series... next all you gotta do is pack him up and get him to other great locations around the world and do a series at each location. Am sure you'd get an arts council grant or lottery funding. Seriously.
Yes, this one is the best for me, too. I agree with Chip. I hate to admit it, but, I don't even have photoshop, nor the time to fiddle with it. Maybe, some day. I will say there is alot of fantastic pictures out there and I have enjoyed all of them very much. Keep them coming.
