Part two of my "The Ring" Series:

In the final scene of the Ring, Samara climbes out of the TV to scare the viewer to death. Since I have no super powers and cannot climbe out of TVs, I had to come up with another idea: The answer was "over-exposing" :)
The scenery shows a cow-hut at the edge of the forest which I infiltrated with my photo-equipment :)
Due to using an "artificial" white balance in "daylight" circumstances I was able to capture the photo with these blue hues.

In the beginning I wanted to keep my photos dark and grainy, but I changed my mind with this piece. However, it should still express a strong dark atmosphere.

Technical Stuff:
------------------
:bulletblue: cam: Nikon Coolpix 5000
:bulletblue: shutter: 1/4
:bulletblue: apperture: f/4.0
:bulletblue: w/b: Artificial Light
:bulletred: photoshop: Levels adjusted & contrast fixed!
:bulletred: comment: I put my cam to "matrix metering" to overexpose the window totally - its not edited :)

I hope you enjoy ?

When i first saw it, my mind immediately jumped to memories of the movie 'The Grudge'. After reading the description, it realized that 'The Ring' wa smuch more apropriate and made much more sense. I believe i though grudge because of the hair the in the movie, the hiar was always in the thing's face...

However, you should honour Ringu instead of The Ring with your work.

Oooh! Nice and creepy! That movie unnerved me! I love how the light is glowing through the boards in the cow-hut. Gives it a sci-fi feel. As do the crooked hands, they look almost like claws and add to the creepiness of the piece. Wonderful shot! :D

Now THIS I like:D Very good job on this one! Definitely creepy.. A bit more so than the rest, in my opinion.

I love that you can easily make out each of your fingers... Your hands digging into the wood really make this picture what it is. Having some light come in through your hair works, too. You look as if you're really about to crawl up to my monitor and climb right out :heart: :heart: :heart:

I'm a big fan of The Ring, so I can definitely admire this. Amazing work!
