This was orinally a warm picture of Amar playing in the garden this morning, making a mess of himself. In this picture I was experimenting with:
1. Photoshop (you heard that right, PHOTOSHOP[!] No more using the primitive GIMP for me :p)
2. The channel mixer in Photoshop to produce a black and white image
3. The dodge and burn tools.
My goodness, I couldn't believe how a black and white image completely transformed the original to this almost-like-a-murder-scene picture. The drama is definitely heightened, I feel, from the original:
Dyanna, seriously my friend - if you want full functionality it's time to abandon GIMP and adopt Photoshop!
