This is one of my favorite pictures I have ever done. This started out as a picture of me looking down at my cat. I cropped the image, removed the background, removed ALL colour, converted te image to just shadows, went back amd added detal, arched the eyebrows and created a glare, added hair, added a bit od a background, cropped the face, inverted the mask, swirled the hair and back ground, added a hue, did millions of other tiny adjustments and ta-da... a neat pic. I love the way it actually shows emotion. This took A LOT of work, so please don't tell me that photo manipulation is not real art. Any comments about this work are much appreciated.
