you're right Pan, it is one of your best shots! my compliments for balance, elegance and composition!


but, i'm very curious, is it possible to view the boat inworld? do you remember the "slurl"?


View pier's home pier | 11 year(s) ago

I'll look it up and post it, Pier :-D
The boat itself is very well constructed and worth a look.

fantastic Pan - great locations that you find! We should set up a tab, we could call it Pan on Location *giggles

I love the colouring on this - very vivid and perfect for the pic :)

I haven't been in SL for a few days, but I managed to pop in and get it for anyone who's interested :-D

Pante!!!! this is gorgeous and ... it made me very nostalgic haha I used to log into this place every single day for months to use the changing room :-). I used Voice for the first time in this place ... I reported abuse in SL for the first and only time while in this boat ... What else? I danced for the first time with a Scottish in this sim haha omg so many memories, so much fun! and the dragon was in a pic in my profile for a loooooong time, I need to find that prehistoric pic in my inventory to share now ...thank you for reminding me of my SL childhood hehehe

Thats fantastic, Antonella...real nice memories :-D

This boat is very beautiful.

hehe FOUND IT! http://www.koinup.com/antonella/work/57728/
this was fun Pante, this took me in time to my newbie life, funny skin and all now that I see it again.

I'm not sure i understand this mentor/review deal. Panteleimon are you not a mentor???

exquisite image...)


View Venk's home Venk | 10 year(s) ago

Actually , No...I'm just learning, and don't even know how photoshop works, so most of my stuff comes about by sheer persistance...LOL

I mostly rely on windlight, and I use Photofiltre for editing, mostly.
I have CS2 now, and eventually I'll have to sit down and see how it works...
till then , I just use render light a lot...LOL

This shot is pure windlight, except for the Chinese text, which has been cut and pasted from the internet, and the framing, which I did with Photophiltre, which is a great free program for beginners like myself :-D

...and I'm glad you like this image, it's actually one of my favorites :-D


View PANTELEIMON-AEON's home PANTELEIMON-AEON | 10 year(s) ago

Venk...well in theory review means he wants a critique on it...but here I think he just needed a bit of love and affection *grins*

And of course mentors can put work up for review too, everyone needs help now and then.

Nice work Pan.


View Trixibelle's home Trixibelle | 10 year(s) ago

Thanks for your love, and affection Trix :-D

I actually put this up for review a long time ago, before all you mentors went summer AWOL,...good to see someone finally got around to reviewing it.

Erm...* looks around *....where's the review???....LOL


View PANTELEIMON-AEON's home PANTELEIMON-AEON | 10 year(s) ago

Don't worry, I searched for something to critique...and I couldn't find a darn thing wrong with it. I really really tried haha


View Trixibelle's home Trixibelle | 10 year(s) ago

OK, I'll find something for you...see the dragons reflection on the water?...it's out of synch, which is common with SL water shots...I'm sure if I
knew how PS worked it could be rectified, but I was pretty happy with it as is :-D

Basically, I put this up for review, as a comparison of my first take on this, which I posted in the comments section above.

And this place is harder to photograph then it looks...ask Pier..LOL


View PANTELEIMON-AEON's home PANTELEIMON-AEON | 10 year(s) ago

Yeh but honestly you don't notice that. The only thing...only thing, I felt....was that the dragon feels a little flat...not enough like its coming towards you. Now, that could possibly be because the light on the dragon...which is correct...is not the same in the reflection, or, it could be that the light and shade generally on the dragon and particularly on the head of the dragon, is not "rounded"...its in blocks (hmm soes that make sense? lol) and yes both of these are easily corrected in PS by using dodge and burn brushes. But really it is a fabulous shot and I'm sure it was extremely hard. I'm teasing about the tlc...although its lovely to get ;-)))

Oh no...I love the TLC...more please :-D
