Missing Child

Uploaded: February 17, 2010


The photo was shot with the shoes on a TV tray against a wall. The dress was behind the shoes on a small dress form. My first step was to add in a base board, which I copied from another image. I then cloned the legs of the dress form away. There was a levels adjustment done and then finished with an added texture that I set to Overlay.
