9th Hour by er0k 9th Hour by er0k
I can safely say without any sort of doubt, that this took me the longest to complete of anything i've ever done art wise on the computer. Time going out to shoot this downtown in Austin, finding the right sky, getting different angles of the church, versions, etc. to match what I had in my mind, and then at least about 5.5 hours straight touching up in PS (my computer is quite outdated and slow), meshing and re-adjusting in Panorama Factory, editing out 4 lens flares from each image, adjusting colors, selective dodging & burning all the details, fucking everything! (there is even a title on the sign where I replaced the churches text with some of my own ;) )

Anyway, I really think it turned out well though? I will be taking a much needed break for a while now, but am glad to have completed something like this to leave on :)

(ps, print will be up soon if you're so inclined heh)

This shot looks so gothic -- the light at the church entrance and the light in the sky are nicely matched.
