My apology to the viewers...here are the originals.
...and then this shot from Bangkok.
It's and eye-catcher but I can't figure out what it is.
Very nice done. Really very nice and original. You know 7 and 7 :). Always watching your works with the great interest.
Great digital alteration. Having fun with photography are we? I was wondering if the streets were paved with glass in Bangkok? Nicely done. HJD
"Fragile Road" I like it alot. The reflections of the front of vehicles in the road is a nice touch. Well done. 7/7
excellent idea and realisation, especially the reflexion of the people !

Wilson- A superior job! I particularly like the shadow work, especially in the area that looks like a hole in the blocks. Wonderful PS work!
7/7 Hi Wilson, this is just perfect!!! so surreal and so aesthetic. I've never thought that traffic jam could be so fascinating - you did it great with lots of talent and originality. Cheers, allon.
A nice 300th to state creativity.
Very nice manipulation. Very well done!

Wilson, I tend not to favour much digital fakes, but this one is really clever and very well executed. Thanks much for sharing.
You r good! :0)
Wonderfully Creative! I can appreciate the time and insight required for you to make this montage happen. As an artist on canvas, the strokes of the mouse yield up this striking image. Shows artful mastery of PhotoShop and much of what the software offers. Very well seen as an end result.
7/7 Very good digital job, Original composition.

The power of creativity! Fantastic work. One more time Congratulations!
Excellent work as always, Wilson. When you can make people think and ponder an image, you've done a good job!
funny & very good !
VEry creative. Nice light and feeling.
Thank you all for taking the time. Appreciate all your feedback. ^_^ Paul, short of taking the pictures of all the cars' front, undersides, the cars' reflection will have to do for now. Good eye, BTW. Ooohhh, 3/3 rater, can you help elaborate a little? Curious of what I can fix. Don't be shy...^_^
Craetive Wilson, and good controled PS manipulation.Interesting result. Pnina
very good and original image!!!!!
Wilson Great PS work. Interesting concept. You can always come up with something creative. Bravo!! Sondra
... Very good digital job, Original composition.Great works!
Wilson: 300 - a good opportunity to look back. Work or inspiration? I think after 300 pictures we are able to judge: Inspired photos, worked out by competence. And may I thank you for the fact that during building up this "heavy" contribution to PN you always had open capacities to look to the right and to the left, to recognize the works of the others and to concern with? HAND, RE
Happy 300 Wilson! This is really creative work. I especially like the diagonal formation of the cars, and their reflections on the "road". A very clean job of editing and a Very Good photograph! Regards.
How cool The photographer and the teacher in action. Thanks for the details, Wils.
Brief Play-by-Play... Thank you all for your feedback. Appreciate them all. ^_^ Steve, it probably took about 1.5 hours all together. Here's a brief play-by-play: 1. STREET CLEANING: Cleaned up street with combo of lasso/feather select, and eraser/various brush sizes. It wasn't hard, just time consuming. I went ahead and left a bit of shadows in front of cars and bikes. 2. ADDING SHADOWS & REFLECTIONS: Shadows as separate layers were pretty straight forward by feathered selection, fill, and varied opacity. Car and bike reflections were duplicated portions from the original layer, flip vertical, distort, and erase to taste. (Paul G. got it right that the reflections were of the top of the cars, and not the bottom, but not much I can do here.) 3. THE ABYSS: I magic wand the window panes I wanted to punch out, and delete. Create a new layer behind the windows, and fill it black. Lasso select different areas and lighten them based on which facade the sunken walls are facing (keep in mind a little of light direction.) ^_^
Ta very much Thanks Wilson for your "Play by Play". If it's OK by you, I will practice this way as a tutorial to see if I can become closer to your level of expertize. Have you checked out my so-far Manipulations folder yet. Be pleased to have your critique on them.
You and your work are too clever for the little amateur I am. But I like this very much, Wilson. I'm convinced that everything which comes up into your mind, you are able to make it. Am I right? Best Regards, Ada.
Wilson, your reflections are amazing. Good eye for details as always.
Hi Wilson. Very interesting work. How long did this take to complete and would you share how you took the vehicles from their photo so cleanly. I have managed something similar but know-where as well.
Wils You get a 10 for creativity here. Congrats on your 300th!

Wilson Excellent image !!

Nothing much to say, here, wilson. You are about as talented as they come. Love the PS work. Keep it up!!
Please feel free... Everyone, please feel free to use the play-by-play above as you see fit. Hopefully it's clear enough, but if any question, just drop me a note. David, thanks for your critique. Always appreciate the honest take. Yes, I get your points and thought of them as well while working it. But after 1.5 hours of messing around, I really didn't want to start over and recompose. Otherwise, I might have not left as much empty space around the traffic cluster, but then again, the building reflection might not have read too well (blocked out too much by traffic.) As for the cut off cars and bikers, it doesn't bother me much, and in fact implies continuity of traffic volume behind them. (Hope you didn't miss the 2 original images BTW.) At any rate, good call about when doing a manip to keep other basic importances in mind. Safe travel, David. ^_^
Excellent intriguing image, Wilson....!!! I love your trick and wit.....
Not 3/3 but...... OK Wilson! I have come to ruin your party. 100/7 for patience. Your skills have pulled off a very interesting image. However, I feel you have got lost in the digital alteration and lost track of your composition. The heads being cut of the motor-cyclists is really annoying. I am also not keen on the fact that the cars to the rear cannot be seen in their entirety. Because of the missing heads and rears of vehicles there appears to be too much foreground. Just being honest!
Very unique. I keep looking at it to see how you do it until I se your original. Wonderful image.
Now that is PS work light years beyond my ability... Great work Wilson, I really enjoyed trying to figure this one out...
Lou Ann, Brad, Cherlyn, and Dave... Thanks you all for your feedback. Appreciate them all. Dave, you got to be pulling my leg . . . ^_^
This is a real masterpice from a real master! Thanks for sharing and giving new inspiration to me.
"Drive Carefully," 300th Image Anniversary, Woohoo... ^_^ Being THE 300th photo on PN, I figure it's got to be sort of special . . . oh well, drive carefully, you all. ^_^
