Fantistic capture, Jeni! #494583

Jeni Yantis July 31, 2006

wow thanks! It originally was part of a self portrait that showed a great deal more of my face. I tried several crops and actually like the tight one best. The picture screamed grunge to me so I tried several different techniques and ended up likeing the dragonizer action best. It was a fun post process shot.

thanks again!!! #3106116
