[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The year is 2019 and much of London is submerged under water. Scientists studying the rising sea levels predict that the whole of the South East could be under water within 18 months if the polar icecaps continue to melt at the same rate. Whole cities are abandoned as populations concentrate on high land....

A view of the future - or have I discovered Flaming Pear's Flood filter :)

Just a bit of fun with a photo of Tower Bridge taken last year. This is my first "play" with the Flood plug-in. This photo was created with layers to have the flood slightly higher at the back of the bridge to the front. I think I need to take this even further and increase the flood level at the back even more

Hi Karan ,
Very nice PP work . Absolutly well done . Your galery is a pleasure to see .

HI karan
Excellent work here, however the most crucial part of it is your note which is absolutely true. Well done, you've convinced me to take public transport as a minimum.

Very clever and imaginative shot - most impressive!

Aside from the pp work there is good detail on the bridge itself. Overall extremely good shot, well done!

Great pic nice PP work

Hi Karan,

WOW!!! What a creative composition!! I really hope things won't be like this 2019...
Great colours and sharpness!

Well done

Hi Karan
Very creative and cool photo! Excellant PP work. Enjoyed the top portion of your notes:) It does look very real. TFS


Hi Karan,
very creative work, but I hope this picture doesn't represent the future of our world.

Hi Karan,

Beautiful visual, but I hope not to want to see that everything to happen. Because I live at an island, if the bridge will be like this, my city then will turn Atlantis.
Wonderful pp work, splendid artificial reflections.

You've managed to put the plugin to very effective use! It is somewhat unfortunate that the not so far future looks so grim...

Wow excellent pp work!

Lovely creative composition Karen.
Great PP work.

Boy this is great PP-work! Very dramatic and scary....makes me think about the future my dear, good job with stunning technique!

Hi Karan,
Let's hope this never happens! Great idea, I love it. At this stage I don't really understand what you have done but hopefully one day I will. Fabulous.

Fantástica composición Karan.

The flood plug-in is so obvious it sucks. Not your work, the plug-in. I understand the eye catching effect but photography is about a lot more than that. (If it sounds rude, I'm sorry).

it looks very dramatic and impressive
but 2019 is very near,im afraid
well done

Wow, what a neat effect, would make an awesome poster size print. Love the colors and the flood effect is really nice! Nice work. TFS

thanks for your comments on my photo " Early Sunrise (44)" :o)

Hi Karan,
This cleverly conceived and wonderfully executed. I like your message about global warming. Tower Bridge looks like a crystal in this submerged scene. Best wishes, Danilo

Karan, lovely photo. Sharp, colorful, well composed. Flood plug-in..hmm. Need to see that. TFS.



WOOOAAAA... This is really stunning Karan. You are becoming a Photoshop expert faster than I do :) I like this. Unfortunately this might not be that futuristic. I have to keep faith in the human specie :) This is a wonderful shot with excellent colors. A symbolic picture very, very well done! Thanks,

Good PP work with an interesting filter. Living in an area well known for its flatness I can't wait to be living on a houseboat!

Hi Karan,

Excellent artwork, nicely presented. Thanks for sharing.


So surreal yet absolutely marvelous :D......I like the play with the bridge and water.

I must try that on a few pic's. Is flaming Pear the software?



Wow - Karan,
that's amazing - what a scenario, I hope it will not look like this in 2019 - but I must say I love this view so much!
So creative, very well done, my compliments

sorry - out today

Hi Karan,
This is quite scarey in view of the threat of tidal warnings once the ice caps have melted.
You are very creative.

the original shot was clearly a good one, but the P.P work has taken this to another level altogether, this is simply stunning and I could not resist adding another 2 points to take you into three figures, well deserved too.

Great shot, nice PP
TFS Dave

Superb use of the flood filter here! I'm am currently trying to find it here on TL! Nice shot, lovely angle, really a shocking photo! It may be true someday!
I'll be back.......

Hi there!
This is very scary, but while there is NO doubt that it will happen, I hope it is not in my lifetime!
This is really amazing PP work - absolutely perfect. The colours, the composition, the details, everything!
Well done!

Hi Karan,

quite apocalypthic (I don't know if I wrote it correctly) but not so unreal if we don't change our behaviour.

Nice idea, well done!


Interesante trabajo y apocaliptica vision. Un saludo.

The colors are great and it looks real, scary to think about it :)

Hi karan !
This is funny :)
But still the sun is shining so it's OK!:)

Hi Karen, this is a magnificent work of art! It's up there with the professionals. The filter is very interesting I must look it up. The whole image is excellently lit with sharp and vibrant colours. The whole scene is sharp surrounded with blue sky and soft clouds. Excellent and would love to see more.

Great PP and it makes you thinking that we live without thinking...

WOW! Excellent PP work.
And forecast :-).

how could i missed this one ?
the PP is great job, fantastic :)

This is great, well composed, slightly eerie at the same time reminds of waterworld.
Great contrast, well done!

Great artistic approach. Love the way you've handled that frame. Strong visual content.

Very nice work with nice effect

Simply stunning! I have no words to comment this photo.
Bravo for the mastering of this tecnique and bravo also for producing such a fine image.
