I haven't posted in awhile but have been quite busy.  This is actually the second version of a photomanipulation created from an original picture taken by my daughter.  After first editing in Lightroom, spent about an hour cutting out the hip hop team.  From there combined a number of photoshop tricks to generate the checkered floor, floor light effects, shadows, star background, stars and exploding dead planet. I finished it up with some color blending and lighting effects and added the text.

Team Apocalypse

Mixed a little hip hop with the streets of Cincinnati and an accidental text effect and there you go...

Here's a link to my Flickr page with more photos...  https://www.flickr.com/photos/chris0martin/


In honor of the new hip hop season for my daughter's team, here's a photomanipulation of the coach.


This is one of my favorites so far and another composition of several of my photos.  This one took about 3 hours.

First Fire of the Season

Haven't had much time lately, so decided to take a shot of the first fire of the season.  Always love a good fire.
