Get Pushed 127:  Hollywood Star by vignouse

Get Pushed 127: Hollywood Star

My get-pushed partner for this week - Nancy @nanderson - said: " How about showing us if you were in Hollywood...this is what kind of movie star you would be".

Well Nancy, if I was in Hollywood I would play the older-than-time Wizard or Sorcerer in a Gothic Fantasy movie, poring over the Ancient Book of Runes in order to solve the Aeons Old Mysteries.

Here I am in a publicity still from my latest movie.
@nanderson Hi Nancy - I managed to find time at the last moment to do your challenge... I hope this meets with your approval. I had fun... but now I've got to clear up the guest bedroom!

Wonderful expression, great props. Makes me want to jump inside the screen and grab the book from you and start reading. I have to ask: what is the title of the book and where in the world did you find it? On an Indiana Jones movie set perhaps?

Excellent!
January 5th, 2015  
@cdonohoue @kt8ird @trinda @hjbenson @kellymansulich A number of you commented on 'The Book of Runes' - in reality it's called "Ars Sacra: Christian Art and Architecture of the Western World from the very beginning up until today". It's a wonderful book; 800pp and it weighs 10 Kg (22 lbs)!
January 5th, 2015  
Superb shot Richard. Got to be a fav!
January 5th, 2015  
Very characterful selfie ... looks fabulous against black!

January 5th, 2015  
Super Richard. I can see you playing such a part! Although I enjoy watching and reading fantasy I would play the moll in a 30s gangster film (or would have when I still had the figure!) I love your capture. If I could give it more than one fav I would.
January 5th, 2015  
@ceilidh Margaret Obey - a Gangster's Moll - who'd have thought it... but now that I look, you do have a certain twinkle in your eye!
January 5th, 2015

I love this! It's totally creative! Just voted for it in Get Pushed...
January 9th, 2015  
Always admire the range of your photographic talent - to say nothing of your acting talent, too. Really suits the processing = HDR?
January 9th, 2015  
Jo
This is brilliant Richard, very creative and beautifully executed.
January 9th, 2015  
So so so so good! Fav and congrats on TT!!!!
January 9th, 2015  
@jocasta Hi Joy, thanks for your generous comments. Not HDR, no - but I processed it to have high mid-range structure which is what gives HDR its charecteristic look. The main effect was achieved by applying a Hardlight filter at about 15 pixels radius and then changing the blending mode to softlight, I finished off by applying a 30% gaussian blur to add a bit of glow to the image.
January 9th, 2015  
@jocasta ... and it's split-toned orange and blue for a cinematic look.
January 9th, 2015  
Congratulations on the TT Richard, not at all surprised.
January 9th, 2015  
as I have just told Babs and Paula hahaha I do not usually comment about the TT but I just love this and am thrilled to see it there Richard
January 10th, 2015  
Congratulations on making the front page of the website and apparently I need to check out the TT. Whoop whoop! So far behind and glad to see your recognition. Very well deserved!
January 10th, 2015  
@kt8ird Thank you kind lady... it is nice to feel that you are making progress.
January 10th, 2015  
Fabulous take on a difficult challenge and what a response you got. Well done on the TT too! I love that you would be in some kind of Fantasy movie.
January 10th, 2015  
Excellent! Super fav!
January 11th, 2015  
I somehow missed this one. Really good interpretation of your challenge.
