Window to the Soul

I like the effect of this.  The toning reminds me of a photo taken in the 1920’s.  I can assure you… this is not what my eyes actually looks like.  This is what I wish my eyes looked like.  Click on the image to make it larger.

Part of what I did here I learned from Fay Sirkis at Photoshop World a few years ago.

Content Aware

I was able to go to Photoshop World in 2010. It takes place in Las Vegas. Since I have never been there before, I enjoyed playing the tourist. I spent part of my time snapping random photos. In front of the MGM Grand Hotel is a big golden lion. Of course I couldn’t resist photographing it. When I got home I could help but to notice that there were a thousand distracting elements in the photo. Ah… but what a great photo to practice content aware on.

I used a combination of “content aware fill” and cloning.
