Still using my phone for these posts. Not the easiest way to do this, but doable.
Continuing with the Deep Dream textures, I’ll present a few more results of my experiments with mixing two separate photos in Deep Dream. Because I’m not at home and these are just random photos, I don’t have the original photos that I used for creating the effects.
I can however show the results of — for instance — using wood photos as a style . . .
Understand, I have no idea how these will show up in the post. Usually, I set them up so that clicking on them will get you the original size in a new window, but this being the crappy WordPress app, I don’t have that option and don’t know how this will present itself once I publish it.
Here’s another of a monkey blended with the drawing of a piece of wood.
That’s actually not that much different from the original. I do have with me the file that was used as the Style imput for he above result:
All that did is smooth out the original.
I also tried doing a few scenery photos with mixed results.
That’s a log in the water mixed with one of my Topax iterations. It’s OK as a possible abstract.
This next series is of the dock I’ve used a lot. In this case, I’m using what is normally a style photo as the main photo that I blend with others. By the way, the next shot is a daytime photo as opposed to the usual sunrise shot.
That shot is blended with a photo of a circular copper wind ornament.
Here, I was curious what happens if one uses the same photo both for the original and the style . . . this is the sunrise shot I’ve used for many iteration . . . It doesn’t do much to modify itself but it does give it a nice solft look.
That is the sunrise scene blended with a dandelion shot (I think — I’m writing this from memory and I’m an old fart, so I could be mistaken.)
That’s one of my favorite versions of that shot, combining the sunrise photo with a photo of a snow scene that I had modified toooking like a nightime shot using Topaz.
Another scenery shot I worked with is a shot of Pulpit Rock in Colorado Springs. Here’s the result when married to the copper wind ornament.
Next is the same original photo married to a photo of the Silversword, a plant that grows only in on the slopes of volcanoes in on Hawaii.
This next shot is Rainbow Falls, in Hilo, modified with a photo of colorful fabric.
Last, but not least, a photo of a lighthouse in the Olimpic Peninsula modified with . . . well, I don’t remember what, right now. Looks nice, though.
A quick word to people who run blogs that I subscribe to.
I will try and read most of the blogs while still on land, but the operative word is try. Once I get on the boat (we’re going on a cruise) I’ll probably be doing less reading.
Even assuming I do read, I don’t know how easy it will be to leave comments. I’ll try, but we’ll see.
In the meantime, I hope everyone is havign a great Labor Day weekend.
