This is an interesting movie; it's frequently hailed as a classic -- and sometimes even called the best of Film-Noir -- but I couldn't find a direct quote of praise for the back cover. Even Roger Ebert's "Great Movie" four-star review somewhat amounts to "this movie isn't great." But, something about it is irresistible.

According to trivia, the painting of Laura in the film is just a still photo with some quick paint strokes on top. So, this is a colorization of a photo of a painting on a photo. icon_eek.gif

You've created an atmospheric and colorful artwork with only black and white images and the right choice of fonts. Got my top vote, very nice work!

The only thing I'd change is the order of the actor's names on the top front to make it look more symmetric above the centered title. wink.gif

That's only because nobody else is interested in doing it. 8824.gif

Good point! I feel the same way about the balance being off and briefly switched it to just "Gene Tierney is" up top instead of everyone's names.

My fake justification is that the bottom-right of the cover is heavy, so it's okay for the text to be top-left heavy. But, in truth, I just blindly followed the official order. ashamed.gif

A few of us have done it/do it. But for me, I always compare what I have done to your work, and feel ashamed of my results lol.gif

I am a huge fan of your covers for many years Tim. I love what you can do with black and white photos to give them freshness and colors. You have huge skills of coloring photos and graphic processing. Thanks for the next great cover my friend.
