Photomanipulation is something I’ve rarely taken the time to practice. And that’s a sad thing, because some of the best photos I’ve seen in 11 years of Second Life have passed through a paint program over and beyond simple cropping. tralala uses a nice bit of post work on this shot, over and beyond the basic monochromatic effect. She appears three times here — and it would have been six times, except for the size of the photo; but you can insert the proper image yourself at the right of the composition.

Walk in love

The title of this photo is Walk in love, and Teej does a great job, with what she shows and what she implies here. Someone is coming, and we are left wondering who the person is. But Teej is certainly ready for them.

Christmas Fashion 1 — O Holy Night   1 comment

All of the blog women have shot photos for Christmas card — which will be coming up on the 25th, by the way — and we’re also adding our dresses as fashion photos.

O holy night
The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our dear Saviour’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope
The weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night, o night divine

Which of the two Chinese do you think I am …?  (Well, actually, I’m not even Chinese, but we’ll just leave that behind us for now.)

… There are the Chinese from Mainland China, who made their fortunes in the past decade like all the Russians, but then there are the Overseas Chinese. These are the ones who left China long before the Communists came in, in many cases hundreds of years ago, and spread throughout the rest of Asia, quietly amassing great fortunes over time ….

My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around

If you’ve been checking the Flickr streams lately, you’ll have seen this costume, the Crystallize gacha from Moon Amore (available, if you want to drop the lindens, at the current round of The Epiphany).  I’m not surprised it’s become so popular — this is one of the prettiest fantasial costumes I’ve seen in over 11 years in world.

But there are photos, and there are photos.  Meriluu has given this photo some post treatment, and brought out all the potential such a magnificent costume latently carries within its folds.  Some might argue about the “Rule of Thirds” being broken here; but rules were made to be broken in some cases. I’m tempted to tell them to let it–  No; actually, I’m not that tempted.  (Grin)

Any road, the flare of the gown’s skirt, with its burden of embedded crystals, forces an “off-balance” approach to the photograph.  Meriluu solves this by cropping in tight, framing herself between the hem of the skirt and the sweep of icy power in the spell she casts.  The orb she holds anchors her to the center of the photo, drawing your eye to this point first; for me, I tend to sweep around the composition counter-clockwise from there, starting with the skirt.  The off-focus border surrounding the entire composition adds an additional touch of fantasy.
