Daily Deviation

Given 2011-01-08
Soldatul by *prunku. While smoking may be unhealthy, it does make for some of the most haunting photographs. ( Suggested by ScarletteDeath and Featured by overdebated )

Brilliant concept, I love it!!! Especially love that the model is wearing a "protective" type helmet. Congrats on the DD you deserve it!!! :)

I was about to get indignant about the comparative safety of smoking compared to trespassing on a railway and getting the model to stick his head down on a line........ right up until I spotted the dinky little sleepers on the left rail which indicates these are probably scale railway tracks and not in fact the surfaces of a main line railway designed to cope with both narrow and wide gauge engines. Hence I assume you had the situation in perfect control and there was no risk of the 10:32 to Bucharest coming looming down the track.

In which case, my headiest congratulations on a spectacular image and and well deserved Daily Deviant.

That railway is not used anymore and I think we were around 12 people at the location in that day so nothing could have gone wrong, no need to worry :).

Thank you for visiting my page.

The best photograph I've seen on here in a long, long time.
I have a couple of questions, 1; where did you get that hat?!
And 2; if you could ever spare a few moments in a note, I'd love to know a little on how you created the finished effect, its perfect for this photograph. But no matter how I try, all my edits seem to look dull and lifeless. :(

Thank you so much!

The hat belongs to the guy in the photo. I think he got it from eBay, a replica of some helmet used in WW2.
Regarding the editing.. I'm really *not* good at it, maybe one day I will learn though.. I just applied some effects (actions) I found here on deviantArt, but I wouldn't know which one. I usually look for lomo / vintage effects.

I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. My old laptop died and I didn't recover the data. I have no idea which effects I had, but if I'll find them, I'll let you know.

But keep in mind that this effects/filters/actions don't really work for all pictures. You need to try and see what you like better.

Good luck!

I think I've found the hat on eBay, top of my things to buy now!

Thank you, you've been a big help, I've never used Photoshop actions before but I'm going to have a look and try and find some which work for me.

Thank you for the response, all the best, Luke. :D

This is an amazing shot. I was going to suggest it for a DD but then I saw it already has one! Not surprised. This is haunting, very expressive. It reminds me of a German soldier of WWII. Utterly fascinating.
