Which came first?

David Earls 3/30/2006 9:13:44 AM

Nice work!

Reminds me of an old cartoon.

Rooster, talking to chick: "Well, in YOUR case, the egg came first." ;-) #417873

I am putting this in digital darkroom as the chick was sleeping in the photo so I have used another photo I took of the chick and swaped his head for an awake one! The egg was turned into a layer and duplicated many times. I have blurred some of the egg layers. The chick was in someones hands when I took the pic so I have changed the background to black. The photo was taken in bad light inside an office. 1/30 sec, iso 50, F stop 2.9 Have a nice day!
