Better Not Pout 2009

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist

(yep, that's me again).
Be good for goodness sake!

I have not had much time for photography (or BP) of late (busy climbing the rough side of the mountain). But in the spirit of the season, I could not resist revisiting this PS project - started over from scratch on this version.
My goal was to make it look a bit more realistic and less "cartoony" than the 08 version while retaining a "magical" quality.

Happy Holidays to all.
