Study in Black and White

Uploaded: January 21, 2007

Description

This is an in camera zoom of a 1960s art work.
I took two shots.
One with no zoom and the other with a zoom.
Both were taken using a tripod.
I pasted selected elements from the clean image into the zoomed image to increase the feeling of depth and provide a 3-D effect.

Entered into Elements of Design
