I think I might have overprocessed this one (mostly tonal compression), in attempt to exaggerate the shadows and create the feel of a still from an old horror flick. I also find the background a little distracting. And the colour doesn’t feel quite right. Generally, I like the image, but I think I might start from scratch again on this one sometime in the near future.

Beach of the Dead V, 22 October 2011. Beach of the Dead is a “zombie walk” that takes place annually in Brighton near to the time of Halloween. Inspired by the classic horror film genre (particularly the George A Romero films), participants garb themselves up as the undead and parade en masse in character from the Victoria Gardens on Grand Parade to the Concorde 2 night club on the seafront.

This year an estimated 4000 people took part in the march.

  1. The composition is great and I really like the rich tones in the gory stuff. What about warming it up? Some of the zombie flicks have that orangish apocalyptic hue lingering somewhere, a sickly sort of color. Maybe a photo filter layer from Photoshop. Just a suggestion.

    1. Thanks. I think I did try a warming filter and didn’t like the result (though I’m quite capricious when it comes to photo processing!). Definitely something to consider if I get around to revisiting this pic.

  2. I think it looks great…but I understand how you feel, we’re always our own worst critic. The Walking Dead is in season 2 now, can’t get enough of these zombies!!
