photoblog image From a dream...

From a dream...

This shot was taken through one of my favourite filters: a tram-shelter window! Many of these have been replaced over the last year or so, but this one has become suitably weathered to my taste...

Aptly titled. I love the ghostly image of the person walking into the frame.

You really have to struggle to get the details...and that's a lot like a dream. Plus it just looks like one.

Great shot.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Dustin. Glad you like it!
I like the result, a good idea for a series maybe, ie what can you use as a filter?
Dave Carrington: Not a bad idea, Nig. Have to see what I can do...smile
Mi piace.

Who needs Photoshop when you have a tram shelter window?! This is beautiful, Dave - I really like it (now I wonder if I would be saying that if I knew it was a manipulated image - probably not!) It looks for all the world like a painting or a scene from a dream.

Dave Carrington: Ta, Ingrid. I guess this could have been achieved with Photoshop, but a mucky window & in-camera blur is more organic! smile

Yes, the tram-shelter window successfully transforms the image into a dreamlike state, which is a good thing to do to a picture as it enhances the visual effect evoking a certain mood. The partial veiling of detail gives the mind some scope for imagination. Good composition and the quality of the light is also evident.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Gavin, for putting into words everything I intended to portray with this shot: very astute interpretation! smile
It is a certainly interesting filter. I like east effect!
Dave Carrington: Hey, Jose! Glad you like it! smile
