Very funny ! I like it, but, I would like to learn the steps to do a job like that. I have no idea about photomanipulation ! Any kind of specific software ?! Your replay will be highly appreciated. Thanks. Carlos
dunno, there's something weird about shoes/legs... baybe the light, and shadow behind you may control the shadow of the red things (on the upper right): it is under, and straight to low-right direction. Try shadow bicycle and legs in this way.
Yeah the legs are I don't know... too close at eachother or something, and to straight. And also the colors/ light (reflections) are not exactly the same as the road, maybe the bike is too shiny. Can't tell the exact 'thing' And the asphalt is a bit too 'crackly'
But the idea is funny, and I have to say, I can not do it after you
Come On Erik we accept a lot from you.. You had set up high standards and I am really disappointed with some of your last work. Please don't mind. I seriously like your work. I am not saying this piece is not good but not of your standard. I am not a great photographer and I haven't done anything as good as you have done but somewhere I feel you need a break. The Experiments which you have done in past are lot better then what you are doing now. If you are satisfied then there is nothing wrong. Its my personal opinion. And plz plz don't mind its just my personal opinion.
Erik I was away from deviantart from quite a long but i saw your work, it kept popping up here or there. Infact your work was published in local newspaper and I was like oh Erik. And I was quite surprised as I live in small town of India so it was really surprising to see your work in local newspaper. I think it was way back in 2011 and I kept that newspaper with me and thought of mailing you the scans but I misplaced that newspaper, really sorry for that.
To be honest your recent work is way too good. You are really going good man. And recently I read you have shifted to Berlin. Well all the best to you. Waiting for something new and different
And I really liked your Set them free artwork and not to forget cut and fold too.
Rolig idé och bra genomförd om än inte lika väl som resten av dina helt suveräna alster. Det är något med benen och närmaste omgivningen som inte ser helt rätt ut. Kan tyvärr inte peka exakt på vad det är, ljuset möjligtvis. Tror det skulle kunna höja bilden om du lade till ett bromsspår innan den nylagda asfalten.
ummmm, actually I liked all of your old work more than this one, maybe you haven't spent worth time on it, also I agree that the Bicycle have another light source and the legs look like a piece of paper pasted there any way, my respect to your ideas
I found funny this, but you asked for suggestions, I think that looks a bit different the guy/girl on the pavement and the bike in comparation with the background, maybe need to do a edition, to manage a equal tone of color to everything. It is my humble suggestion.
Great work! I think you should improve the light on this one, the bike and legs doesn't have the same light that the rest of the image. Also the legs seems too short for that bike (I would make the bike smaller), but maybe it's me . The road it's ok, specially on the beginning of the path, but take one thing into account: if the cement is wet, it should be like waves, not broken. In the image it appears broken, like it's dry and hard to broke.
Great piece! Lighting on bike looks like studio light, not street light. And generally, comparing this idea to your other works, this is too close to what can actually happened. Not surreal enough, but I don't know if it even a bad thing.
