Anton by raun Anton by raun
A portrait of the miniature creature Anton.

Its the photo I like most of all of my own shots. Its the only one I cant say I get tired of looking at. Uploaded before (think i called it "contemplation" ), but since then I've gotten much better at using the monochromatic channelmixer, and the other version had some meaningless effects on it, so here is a cleaner version.

Hope you like it.

This is a beautiful little person, children are such an endearment. They are also messengers to a time we will not see. He is very intriguing, and I want to know if I can draw him?

exactly what everyone else said-- it's priceless. 'like the world is reflecting in his eyes'... he seems so thoughtful and... almost wise. yet innocent and untouched at the same time. anton. :nods: good kid. good life. ;)

PS monochromatic channelmixer!? a plug-in of some sort!? or?

raun Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2003
Hey Tom :-) thanks for your comment. A channelmixer is a standard adjustmentlayer (found in the layermenu). Its sort of an equalizer, giving you the opportunity to regulate how the 3 (red,green & blue) channels interact. If set on monochrome, it works in greyscale. Its amazing how much more depth to a b/w photo you get using this method instead of ordinary greyscaling or desaturation. try it man ;-)

Wow, I do like the title "Contemplation" for this photo better than "Anton", because that's what it looks like to me. He has such a deep expression on his face, and the eyes seem seriously penetrating or lost in thought. Then you look down further and see the pacifier in his mouth and notice that he's like 1 or 2 years old! hehe.

Amazing work. I love this photo. +fav

Make sure you keep those eyes as clear as they are, little Anton. It's hard to do, but it's worth hanging on to love . trust . believe .
