The challenge this week for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, set by Ann-Christine, is called creepy. depending on the light I find churches slightly creepy.
Anyway, the creepy part of the above image was how the preset I use for creating creepy, moody atmospheres, turned the light on the right in this picture to a black and white tint.
It just seemed so chilling how Lightroom managed it.
Then I thought about all those that lost their lives during conflicts and people they left behind. So I decided to create a composite image.
I added a feint-shadow of a soldier where the black and white area was on the right. Then I found a clipart image of a lady in olden dress and added her standing in front of the soldier. Finally, I added a poppy wreath. Once I was content with the composite, I then gave the image a paint effect using Topaz Impression 2. Her laying a wreath in memory of her long lost love.
