broken hearted

Not a shot I would normally take, this was for the monthly scavenger hunt’s “heartsickness” category this February.

    Great texture and the red popping out of an otherwise monochrome image makes it very striking.

  2. This is a strangely delightful image. Warming but with a touch of the Blair Witch about it. Thanks for the inspiration James.

    I love heart shaped cut out, I think that is an original. I think you did a great job with the combination of different shades of red. My only comment is the edge of the heart at the bottom coul have use a bit more red. All in all I find the shot okay.

    …and yeah it does have a Blair Witch feel :-)

    To clarify, I did not create this, I just found it in the woods and thought it made a nice photo.

    I do edit photos in the “digital dark room,” but generally I’ll just “take things away,” not add to them. For example, in my recent pasta photo, there was a tea set on the counter behind the pasta. I didn’t feel like it added to the image at all, so I took it out by using some of the shadows in the rest of the image to cover the dishes.

    In this image, I increased the saturation of the colors about 5%, and bumped the contrast up ever so slightly.

    Oh no! having a broken heart is not easy. You can find difficulty to move on. Even though the wounds is healed but then the scars are still remain. It easy to forgive but it hard to forget. I experience broken heart twice. I fall in love with a wrong guy with third party involve.This experience help me to become strong and learn to love my self. Hope I could find Mr. Right……. Thanks for reminding me of my broken heart days. More power to your site! God bless ;-)
