This is my son taking over my "space". I was doing some macro shots and he just couldn't stand not being the center of attention. He kept climbing up on the ottoman I was using. I finally just gave in and threw him his teddy and went with it! LOL!

Blended a few layers and adjusted levels to achieve a sepia tone, then returned saturation very slightly to the teddy. No crop on this one. :)
