Butterfly Effect


You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about the future.

We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams.

~ Jeremy Irons


_______________________________________

The Butterfly Effect is a 2004 American psychological thriller film directed and written by Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber. The film stars Ashton Kutcher, Amy Smart, Eric Stoltz and others, and was distributed by New Line Cinema.

The title is a reference to the butterfly effect,

which is a metaphor that encapsulates the idea that if one were to make small changes, while going back to the past, the resulting changes to the present would be large and various.

The film was followed by two largely unrelated sequels, the direct-to-DVD The Butterfly Effect 2 and the After Dark Horrorfest release The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations.

Very cool! Youare so clever and talented!

Love this photo, and that movie. I thought i was the only one who saw it! lol. Everyone i've ever asked didn't see it, or even hear of it. I'm happy to see this today. The concept of the movie is and will always be relatable.

yes! Somewhere in time is a WONDERFUL movie as well! awww. totally. & i never saw part 2 of butterfly effect. I refused actually, since it seemed completely unrelated to the 1st part. :/ I might sit through it now though, if i came across it on netflix or somethin... :p
p.s. You're welcome. :)

@amiller thanks amanda.....

@bugik thanks bugik

how to :

photoshop:

1. choose portion of a photo that u want to be "sharp" / then make a new layer copy and paste it ....

2. go back to the first layer, clcik filter > Blur > motion blur : angle (0)
and choose your desired distance .... for this photo (150) .

3. then go back to the 2nd layer (the sharp/clear photo) smudge the edge, so theres no trace of any lines ....

4. then go to layer tab > flatten image

AND viola!
