Ghosts by the pond

long exposure just after sunset. The orange under the trees is due to the sodium lights in the park. Modified in the Gimp to remove the images of the people sitting on the park benchs, and the glare from some of the lights. 8s at f/2.0 with tripod

I know digitally modified images often aren't well-received here, but

I thought I'd try anyways. This image was modified in the Gimp

(open-source Photoshop-like package) to remove the images of the

people sitting by the pond, but *not* their reflections. I also

removed the glare from some of the lights, but I think that's less

noticable.

 

I kind of like the end result - what does everyone else think?

I love it! The image is attractive in the first place and there's nothing better than taking a closer look and finding elements like those reflections. Almost hidden but once you notice they make the image. I would adjust the tilt though, the lean is distracting to me.

Digital, but very interesting nevertheless! A shame you revealed the most intriguing aspect of this photo before we get to see it ! Very original idea. Well done. Maybe you can try to manipulate the colors so that instead of a warmth surrounding the whole scene, turn it cold, and eerie.

I like it from both an aesthetic and originality point of view, but I wonder if a tighter crop would help -- not sure I would've noticed the ghosts without your comment.
