Photoshop for fun...

I am sure alot of us do it. We get bored and sit down in Photoshop to play with our pictures. Lets collect some of the boredom work in one thread..

Started with a square crop of half of the face of my daughter, made a new layer and flipped it and merged them together into one face. Lightened one side and darkened the other. Finally I put some colour in her eyes and burned down the hair on the dark side to make it not too obvious it was the same half as the other.

You are right zewrak - I re-read your intro. It is certainly a demo of the incredible things it is possible to do with PS. Personally I have enough trouble just trying to make my regular pics look decent Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile

The duplication makes it looks innatural, like a ghostly doll. I find it a very disturbing image (not meant as a critic to your work - just a consideration about
the final effect it has on me). Perhaps that was your purpose, I don't know (to make a disturbing image).
I appreciate the technical skills involved and the well accomplished execution, but it's not really my cup of tea.

I agree it makes stuff look unnatural and it is a bit scary. It's kind of funny that symmetry does that, since appearently symmetric people are the ones that we in general find "beautiful". But when I'ts done to perfection it gets disturbing. Smile I wonder if our brains really are capable of noticing that her face does not look like that in reality.

One of one of my daughters and her friend



Another one of her.



Yet another one of her.



And then there's this one, a poster for International Earth Day this year.



I am not locked into photography as only documentation.
