Half the fun

.
Half the fun I have with photography is taking the photos.

The other half is tweaking, editing and manipulating them.

nursemyra said...

very cool indeed

Sarah said...

i digs it man. but then, you already knew that. you come up with some really neat ideas.

(W.V. regible)

the only part i am just a little (very little) picked about, is the top part of the mask. the lower part looks like it has a little thickness to it, but the upper part appears to be as thin as paper. which may have been the intention.

Kim Ayres said...

Debra - it is fun :)

NurseMyra - thank you :)

Sarah - You're right - I keep looking at it and I know it's not right, but I feel I've learned a lot from creating this

Creepy with a capital K.

Now I know where nightmares come from. Photo shop.

Kim Ayres said...

Carole - Photoshop just allows us to find ways of expressing our nightmares :)

amy flege said...

Kim Ayres said...

Thanks Amy :)

Ché l'écossais said...

Teeny wee bit of anti-aliasing ( "blur" )on the top curve of the mask ( on the "mask" layer, not the flattened image )should solve your "it's no right" problem.

Brilliant picture, though.

Kim Ayres said...

Thanks Ché. If I was doing it again I'd make a number of changes. But it's the doing it in the first place where we learn :)
