I had to scale this down a LOT so it wouldn't be as big as people screens..
Love the Chrismas ordainment. I think it'd look better if the lighting was reduced on the background, and had it's main attention added to just the ordainment itself, but still it's a good looking image imo.
Yeah, I tried to make the back a bit darker but I couldn't get it right without it looking akward. So I just didn't worry about it. Haha.
This may sound kind of weird, and perverted, but it's not. If you put a leotard over the lends of your camera/camcorder and record/take a picture it'll give it a soften skin effect, depending on the color, thickness, etc: etc: and you can get some cool, and different effects just by using that.
You should try checking that out sometime too. as the image does look a bit rough, I think making it soft on the background and having the detail on the ordainment would make it look better, although not so much bumping as it as in the picture. Maybe lowered down a bit.
I'm not much into Photography, I'd like to give it a try, but my cell phone camera doesn't cut it.
This looks very nice. The focal being just the ornament would be great. Maybe blur that branch next to it.
this is screaming for some photomanipulation. Like a lil wonderland going on in the ball thingy and then some nice blurred bg! DO IT!
Good idea. But photo manip. isn't one of my specialties. You could try it if you would like?
So great pic. How was it done?
with a camera! Duh?
Lol, yeah. A camera.
How, not what was used. But it is also my fault because I thought it was an imaged edited. ;D
It have a nice focus. ~up
Christmas is my favorite festival. normally during Christmas people decorate their home, wear new clothes, burst the crackers. here i look the mind blowing Christmas decorated picture. i like the color and design of this picture. moreover it is interesting and good looking image.as per my view this the best website for know more about the Christmas.
Look up quick mask.
Duplicate the layer.
Create a gradient selection using the blend tool.
Change the options of the blend tool (Window > Dockable Dialogs > Tool Options).
In the tool options change the Shape.
Make a bi-linear or radial gradient on the quick mask layer.
Disable quick mask to turn it into a selection.
Delete the content of the selection of the duplicate layer (press delete key).
Change the layer mode and opacity to achieve desired effect.
Rinse and repeat with another duplicate layer. Mixing layer mode effects such as Screen, Overlay, and Multiply colors has an effect you're looking for.
not what i meant, but nt bad. I would blurr the b/w a lil more
This is what I meant by all that gibberish in my previous post.

Look at the layers' and channels' names for descriptions of what I did. In order from bottom to top. No plugins used.
