    Its a windy day in good ol' Estell Manor

    Another photo manipulation effect, this time, levitation photography, image stacking, and dispersion effects all used in the same picture. Let me know what you guys think!

    Thanks:

    I did not know one could do these things with photos... I think the photo is very nice, and like the levitation effect but the dispersion effect does not work for me.. ie; somehow it detracts from a nice photo

    I like the second one much better also. It makes me feel as if the person is being sucked to the right.

    Considering the substantial effort required to make a photo like this, don't forget to apply the basics. As an example, this photo would me much better in my mind if more attention had been paid to dealing with the background, such as rendering it out of focus, using a different background, perhaps not placing the large tree in the center of the image and the center of the horizontal person, etc., etc.

    I honestly ran through it all in my head planning it. I was very limited to what I could hold onto for the flying part, and that was the best solution, I could have blurred the background, but didn't even think of that. I also just did the dispersion effect really just for fun. Both pictures are really fun to look at and they are made to make people think. Thank you for your criticism though!

    Zach, I think they're pretty fun to look at too. And I appreciate the fact that you've taken some time to learn layers, masking, and effects in Photoshop, which is something many of us far too often overlook.

    Thanks for sharing them!
