Diptych

Gee I hope I’m spelling that right…

My 365 and the “other” shot I took yesterday looked kind of cool next to each other on my photostream so I thought I’d make a diptych out of them. And yes, this is photoshopped (at least the eye color is!) I originally was going to make the 365 photo B&W so I was doing my usual lightening and increasing contrast bit (otherwise it ends up being a bit muddy) but like the way the eyes stood out…so I just kept it that way. My eye color is usually more greyish/blue than this aqua color that is happening here. But what the heck! Someday I’ll post a straight-out-of-the camera shot of myself so you all can see what I really look like! 😉

Diptych

Dave is leaving on a work trip until Thursday, boohoo. I guess Coen and I will spend the days eating candy and dancing to loud music! Ha!

    Love the texture on the fall picture.

    The Depth you got of your eye, instead of the curl- how cool.

    Tres cool! I haven’t even begun to play with Photoshop or anything like that yet. So much to do…so much to learn….

    Well your photo shop effect does make the eye color a mighty nice match to the color of your fall picture. 🙂 It is neat you got the focus on your eye rather than the curl.

    You guys will have fun while he’s gone. And before you know it he will be back.

    Kirsten,

    Nice job. Great combination of photos. You totally caught some great catchlights in your eye. May I ask, did you use a litedisc? I am trying to work on making eyes pop and would love any advice you could give. Hope Dave got home and you and Coen didn’t eat TOO much candy (lol). 😉
