Love the photo, looking at the shrunking
girl I almost didn't see the cup and table. Great shoot

Thank you Starlet. I'm wondering now since you both mentioned not seeing the cup & table right away, is that a
good thing or is it a negative? Could it be like added interest after the fact? (like getting your attention for a second time). I got so focused working on this that I think I lost the
forest for the trees for a while.
Thanks for your comments and feel free to make suggestions. #520192

I think it is good. It made me keep looking for other things and actually I noticed the reflection in the table after noticing the mug! Great image!!!! #520234

Hi again Myra. I think the reason we saw the girl first is because of scrolling up to see the whole picture.
I think th ephoto is great and I love all of it. I would like to know how you did it, so maybe one day I could do something like it. I have Paint Shop Pro 8 and I am just learning to us it.

There are no negatives about this photo

Thank you Joey and thanks Bill for coming back with the encouraging words. I haven't used Paint Shop Pro but heard it's great. I used Adobe Photoshop to layer the images. It's an industry standard program and is an incredible tool for image manipulation offering an endless amount of filters, plug-ins, actions, etc. If you want to know more about it please email me as you can demo it for free. Thanks again for your comments. #521346

I love this image! I had somewhat the same experience as the others as far as noticing the cup and table last. That was an added bonus, though, because I initially thought that the cup was just a chair. What a fun surprise to discover otherwise. The title may be another reason why people are tuned in first to the shrinking figure. #526039
