#decim8nday | I always thought there was an app that cropped images like this but maybe I was thinking too hard .

For this image I took an #alfredinfrared #hipstamatic shot and ran it through #decim8 with the #fold4rap5 effect .

Next, I loaded the saved image into #filterstorm and added a dark vignette with a little falloff to give the feathered 3D feel. A second vignette was added with brightness all the way up and falloff set to ZERO to create the final circle crop .

The #amaro filter was added during post to cut the saturated reds and lighten the contrast slightly .

How many faces do you see in the final image? #iseefaces
  • Excellent work man!!

  • Fab result (as always!). Also, superretro has a round frame :)

  • @dnorphoto Thanks David! Appreciate that! 👊

  • @sippinlattes Haha! Thanks B 😃 Superretro and I don't get along for some reason but now the puzzles solved! 😄 Thanks!

  • @evie_white sssssssss! 😜

  • @nolpgh Thanks Noelle! 😊

  • Oh so many! It almost looks like a Chinese plate. Beautiful--I could look at it 1,000 times and see something different each time!

  • @derblutenkat : very cool

  • Diptic can be used for round frames.

  • Well executed bro. Love the end results. Lemme get my 3d glasses out.

  • l3po3r 5y ago

    Amazing! Thank you for sharing your creative process!

  • Splendid Adam, well done! The image is very pleasing to the eyes and has a fragile quality.

  • Again, you are so generous to list your steps. A fine result!

  • You could you diptic + squaready to get the round frame...but I know you're having fun doin it on filterstorm 😜

  • Anyway, what does fall off means? I'm learning the term use in photo editing

  • @oscinesty Right?! I started flipping it around and was seeing human figures, bear faces, skulls with horns, etc etc. Thanks for validating the fact I'm not losing it 😄

  • @urbancurse Thanks man! Been feeling pretty free to experiment with some new stuff the past few days.

  • @cptpablo Hahaha! Thanks man! This only works with the old school blue/red flimsy's 😜

  • @watchfool Thanks bud. Don't think I could have summed it up as concisely or thoughtfully. I'm noticing you got a thing for that. Now please tell me you listed the apps on your "Waiting" image already 😉😄

  • @karenpercelle Thanks a bunch! And honestly, I find that the more I share the more I'm inspired 😊

  • @alipalooza Hey! Falloff is the "fade" of the vignette. How quickly it goes from solid color to nothing. The fallout for the black vignette here is noticeable, especially from the thumbnail image. But the fallout from the white vignette is so drastic (no fade) you might not even know it was applied as a vignette. 😃

  • Aweso

  • Erm, yeah. Like it a lot!

  • j.osh 5y ago

    Great job on the edit and detailed process info

#arc_farmseries | Of course a barn isn't complete without a proper silo. The massive 5 story structure is solid poured concrete with external post-tensioned cables placed every 6 feet for reinforcement. When filled, silos often experience several hundred pounds of outward pressure from the contents inside.

Luckily, it was emptied long ago and now acts as a "concrete terrarium" for ferns covering the ground inside.

The silo has been a creative playground for people that have visited. Ideas have ranged from a "sit in" fireplace with curved benches to a climbing wall to an observatory, complete with spiral staircase and telescope. Got a suggestion? Share it below 😃

#arc_farmseries | In the 1910's an effort was made to separate milk production and storage for sanitary reasons. To address this, one room structures known as Milkhouses were attached to the front of dairy barns. Once cows had been milked, the bottles were stored here in the Milkhouse until they were picked up for distribution.

Rushing, waiting, anxiety. What did he forget? Did he lock the doors? Is his family safe? He goes to check...but remembers it's too late once he's left

Join us in this nail biting essay that will have you on the edge of your seat until the very last image. To read the entire essay just click the link in our profile.

#arc_farmseries | So me and my wife aren't very traditional. In fact, we thrive on taking risks and living outside the box.

While some people put an offer down on a house because they liked the kitchen and spacious bedrooms...we put an offer on the house before we even saw the inside. Crazy? Maybe. But the second we walked through the 5 story tall 4,800 sqft barn (it is EPIC) we knew it was exactly what we wanted.

#arc_farmseries | My wife and I recently bought a farm on 10 acres. Had always been on the "bucket list" and we were lucky to find one last fall with tons of character. Still needs a lot of work before move in but a little work everyday goes a long way. // #hipstamatic #jimmy #dtypeplate #hipstaedit

#arc_LimboSeries | Drifting through air, comforting like warm sand, a transition no man could understand. He awakened to a fury of panic and fear, as reflections of life, became so dear.

Under wreckage and metal, smoke and fire, few had survived, as most lives had tired.

Pulling himself, from the debris and ash, he realized...he had survived the plane crash.

#arc_LimboSeries | Time seemed to pause as he reached for the phone, the building lights humming a low buzzing tone.

Something was changing, pulling him back, to where his memory, had suddenly jumped track. His life was suspended, like a frame in time, the vacant terminal was simply a sign.

Bringing the phone, up to his ear, he heard a voice whisper "Not yet my dear". Dropping the phone he took a step back, as the terminal lights, faded to black.

#arc_LimboSeries | Leaping off the last step, his bags left behind, he felt as though he had lost his mind.

The wailing blared loud but no one was there, the voices they shot straight out of thin air. Just inches away he could feel their breath, their words were disturbing, like whispers of death.

So many people, so young and so old, a common story, every one told. Excitement and pleasure, turned to pain. Then everything stopped, as the phone beside him rang.

#arc_LimboSeries | Stopping all movement he listened again, scanned where he stood and where he had been.

It couldn't have come from on the main floor. Wait! He heard it again, and this time heard more. More voices and people and shouting and cries. Sobbing and gasping and saying goodbyes.

Leaving the static the TV screens blared, he chased calls for help, straight back down the stairs.
