Little Eskimo

Uploaded: January 20, 2009


This is a snapshot of a friend's grandaughter in her Halloween costume. It is a white tiger, I think. I did many PS edits to create a painted effect. I had a lot of fun discovering the various clone tools and how they can create "snow." This is a second version with more detail around her face and deeper skin tones added.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/80 seconds, Flash: fired, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 55.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi
