The Maltese Falcon is a classic movie from 1941. It has everything that makes a classic film noir style movie – hard-boiled detective, cold-blooded murder, a seductive femme fatale and a lost treasure worth killing over… Great stuff.

This image is the result of my last image, the exploding planet. After reviewing the YouTube tutorial, a list of recommended videos come up. In the list was one on how to make a sun and I decided to do this one next.

Exploding Planet

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

Tutorial: Blue LightingTV YouTube Channel

In two of my previous images I have made planets, so I guess it is ok to destroy a planet. After all I am still one planet ahead in the whole scheme of things and I didn’t need a Death Star to do it!

Colour Eye

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

I can’t say how many times I have seen this effect done – it seems to be a standby for all print houses that want to say “we have an eye for colour” (or color if you are from the U.S). Despite being over done in print publications, the image is effective.

It occurred to me that I had never done this image. I decided to give it a try, and it worked. Actually it was amazingly simple to do. I think it took about 5 min. It definitely falls in the “easy-to-do, but very effective” group of special effects.

Wine Bottle

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

Tutorial: Blue LightingTV YouTube Channel

This image started off as a digital sun-burst created in Photoshop. The effect is cool, but I wanted to play with it a bit more, so I decided to turn it into a wine label… not sure why, but it seemed to be a good idea…

Here is the label without the wine bottle

Cheers!
