B&W, not quite…

I had a few minutes this evening to experiment with a snapshot I took this past weekend.  It’s a pretty simple picture. Composed okay, no fancy or ethereal background, no wow factor.  There’s no awesome eye contact, no wide, welcoming smile, and no “take my picture” worthy expression.  And yet, I liked the shot as a foundation.

I played.
I overlayed.
I textured.
Then I erased.
And tried again.
And again.
And yet again.

February Flashback

My one regret?  Somehow when I was cropping, I didn’t check the resolution (default is 72 dpi, 66×44″).  With my crop, the largest 300 pixel image I can print is 6×9.

I want to cry.
