I was feeling in the mood for something Lovecraftian. My favorite story is actually "The Color Out of Space", but I haven't yet figured out a way to Photoshop a color no one has ever seen before.

Very creepy and attractive at the same time. Clap I find myself thinking things like 'approaching storm' when I study it. I especially like how you made the Big C indistinct. Some of those folks are saying to their companions, "Ah...I don't think that's just a cloud!"

Eerie!

Regarding "The Color Out of Space", why don't you start off with...

 I) The meteorite itself,
 II) the well,
 III) or the effects it has on the livestock, insects, plants, humans, etc.?

Have you seen the film Die Farbe? It means The Color and is an adaptation of the story. It was filmed entirely in black and white...except for the Color. The Color was added with a computer and was violet. So it looked truly unearthly in shots like this: www.brutalashell.com/wp-conten…

Wow, cool! Actually there IS a way to visually represent a nonexistent color: create two identical images, but make the Color different in each image. The viewer crosses their eyes to combine the two images into one, and the colors merge together to create not their midpoint on the color wheel, but an impossible color hybrid.

Oooohhh!  You're on to something.  This would work great with a stereoscopic image ... I may try it.

Very cool -- the architecture of the buildings makes me think "Lovecraft meets Godzilla"

(Color out of space couldn't be photoshopped, and a digital camera couldn't image it, because the digital color range is too restricted, you'd need to use something like Kodachrome II to record it and they're not making it anymore...)
