Stitched together the same shot, different versions. I used three separate editing programs to get this. First I shot the portrait with a hot-light and umbrella. F4.9, 1/18sec. ISO 100. Then used Photoshop to soften her skin and adjust color. Then flipped, made a duplicate layer and converted to B&W. Used the eraser to bring back details and color in the eye and flowers. With Photo Explosion I cut and pasted the two shots to a black background and added bubbles. Then I used HP Image Zone to crop and soften. I thinks thats about it, anyway I had alot of fun and am really enjoying playing with pictures.
