He has his mothers eyes!

Uploaded: November 26, 2007


Picture of my son holding a white strip of paper. Took another photo of my wife and cut, pasted and realigned them to be positioned relatively where his would be. Erased and feathered her surrounding skin. Used the dodge tool to blend them slightly then merged the two together.

Exif: Exposure Time: 1/30, Flash: 9, ISO: 400, Camera Model: Canon EOS 30D

Thank you. Ever since I posted the picture I wished I would have spent more time on it. I finally resubmitted a cleaner, more vibrant copy. Thank you for spending the time to give me feedback. It always makes my day. #5341529
