(The only reason I skipped several shots is that I'd already commented on them.)
Wow, I really like all of these a lot. (I don't remember seeing this when it went up---I must've missed it, which I never do.) The top one is wonderful, with the chair off to a side, and with lots of angles, incl those of the lonnnnng shadows. Great street texture too, and I like how the chair straddles the street and sidewalk. A very complex original, with great light and shadow.
The second one is drowned in "Vertigo" like stress lines (as in the Hitchcock film), and you did a fine job of retaining just enough of the original to recognize it; but the whole is taken over by what almost looks like a gigantic thumb print. Fine job with those zebra-like vertigo lines, and I love how the chair stands out amidst it all. Not an easy job, keeping definition when a pic is overtaken with such a powerful blend item.
The last one---great blend! I love the peeled wall on top of the original, making the original look like an old, old decayed photo. The chair looks great with all those wrinkles in it---this is a fine use of blending, Harry. Love that shot.
Btw, I'd be delighted to show you my photoshop methods: The problem is, I haven't any: I do everything by feel. But maybe I'll come up with some list or something, and send it to you. It's no state secret, just intuitive, so difficult to convey. Really, I just use basic adjustments, just over and over (in tiny amounts, over and over, creating an intense layered effect). It's the blending that transforms what I do. And that's all by feel. I'll see if I can get something on paper for you...something concrete...
