H E L I O S by mrcool256 H E L I O S by mrcool256
I know I've been posting a bit more than I usually do lately... but the weather has been heavenly so I can't help myself! Anyway, I took this one this morning actually... the clouds were wonderful and when I saw this building thoughts of mysticism filled my head. Tried to make it look foreboding and mythical, almost like it could be a modern temple to an ancient God.

You guys are the best, I truly thank you all for all the support. Thanks for viewing and have a wonderful day everyone!

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-05-17
In the words of the suggester, H E L I O S by =mrcool256 "takes on a new look to architecture, with his unique chemical color manipulations and a distorted perspective, culminating with a singular star in the center, this is more a piece of creative artwork than just a any common photo." The image retains the qualities of architectural photography, showing off the details of the structure, but uses traditional inspired techniques to make the resulting photograph exude a suspended reality.

What catched my eye are three similar things.
The hidden Helios in the clouds,the other Helios sigh over ther building entrance and of course the Helios word as the photo description..!!!
Since I am Greek and Helios means in Greek Sun.... Love to watch your photos!!!

Is this photoshopped?

By photoshopped what are your referring to? Photoshop was used to edit some of the colors... but nothing was actually added or subtracted from the shot.

Gratz on the DD sir.

I won't bore you with praise since you get enough!

So I'll just ask when are you taking my new DA ID?
Reply
:iconmrcool256:
mrcool256 Featured By Owner May 18, 2008
Haha, thanks man. Ah... new ID... I gotta see about bumping into you in downtown Phoenix sometime. Although I'll admit... I'm not the best with portraits... you'd probably get a shitty ID out of the deal... haha.
