September 16, 2007: WTF rock over highway
Fa- Sunday Sep 16 05:11 PM
argh, i hate to be the one to say this as i thought it was really cool when first saw it, but it seems very fake to me, you can see in the texture of the rock face there is multiple dublicates.. most noticable on the grass at the very top

Im with Fa- looks a little suss to me. If not though interesting

Or there was some writing over the picture that someone removed crudely.
busterb Sunday Sep 16 06:30 PM
Youse guys never saw something like this? Damn.

You can see it on the bottom over the building in the background too. Awfully sloppy to cover up some writing. Looks like they better than doubled the size of the overhang.
Wombat Sunday Sep 16 07:01 PM
Yes definately photoshopped. Oh well... still a WTF pic!
ashke Sunday Sep 16 08:59 PM
But the Chinese sign does say... "Beware of rock"...
xoxoxoBruce Sunday Sep 16 09:10 PM
I wonder what this is?

What an amateur P-shop job!

Nice job Adam. Looks more like a human head in your version. Hair on top, big chin with stubblies. More interesting as a formation in your version.

Okay, Adam's picture deserves its own IOTD. Nice job, Adam!

You sure that Chinese sign said "Beware rock" or did it actually say "Beware giant Abe Lincoln"?
Sheldonrs Monday Sep 17 01:38 PM
Be funny if it actually fell ON a Lincoln.

Yeah, well done for sure! You mind asking how you did that? Not step by step or anything, but broad ideas...

I think she typed the letters M-O-U-N-T-space-F-U-D-G-E-M-O-R-E, and then the question mark key.

Restore rock to probable original proportions---
Lasso along double-stamp lines, copy paste to new layer.
Move to probable original positions (multiple pieces)
Lasso remaining extra rock in original layer
Fill with sky color
Stamp, patch, heal, blur- to blend with original sky.
To Make Abe:
Lasso, paste, free transform (rotate nose) lasso, burn shadows, burn midtones, lasso, dodge highlights, stamp.
Combine with years of P-shop and a sculptor's sensibilities ...
And presto- Abe Lincoln- 10 minutes. Easy. ;-)

Nice work, Adam. Clearly, the most important tool you used was your eye. ...btw: your work is referenced here (post #6)

Y'all don't believe this is real, but I bet you believe there are still WMD in Iraq...
