Blue Mars - Gridrock City Steampunk Elements
I continue to be fascinated by the Steampunk elements in Blue Mars. This motor in a lighthouse (the strange thing in back with the electric flashes coming out of it is a transportation mechanism) really belongs more in a 1920 visage then in a future planet colonized by man. I love anachronistic devices such as this in setting a period mood in a futuristic setting
I applied a Golden Sunset glow in the PicasR section of Flauntr, one of my favorite online photo editors to give it a glow that appears to be just a bit alien to what the eye is used to. All you have to do is upload and image, apply the color changes, and save it back again. I think the golden light adds much to the image.
