Skull Floating Over Ho Chi Minh City

Skull floating over Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, surreal artwork by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Godseye.

There are two versions of this, the second, Godseye 2, being in black and white. This is one of those fairly rare images that work both with and without color.

But as is usually the case, it wasn’t just a matter of color desaturation. The contrast had to be increased to look right in the black and white version, too.

I wrote about the difficulty of the tilt-shift effect in my post about Godseye 2, so I won’t repeat that here. Suffice to say it was rather involved.

The base image of Ho Chi Minh City (previously known as Saigon) was quite flat color-wise. The colors that began to emerge from it upon editing were a pleasant surprise.
