Leopard Spots

I was very close to committing this one to the bit bin, but I had originally become fascinated with the Leopard Spots and didn't want to lose them entirely. I first converted this to monochrome and worked on the lighting values, but I was still left a large empty hole in the bottom left corner. And STILL, those white spots didn't want to go away. So I tilted the whole image about 50 degrees to the right and used content-aware fill to square off the image. This is probably more of an abstract now, than a black and white portrait, but Hey!, I saved the white spots and gave it some interesting context in the process.

Frank and Charles, I'm so happy to hear from you again. Someday someone needs to fill me in on the history of this site. I say that because I recognize a whole cadre of folks I have respected for years.

I like the light inside the flower and the added texture. Well done! S-

Nothing to see here, just a bunch of refugees that found a home! S-
