Here is an entirely different version of this young lady, in the Kitchen Sink style, without the mystery and finesse of Dave's elegant version.

Minnie, I'm liking your version much better. The kitchen sink speaks high volumes, but yet still sets the stage for this lovely tarot reader. The other one I have is close to yours, but nowhere nearly as effective.

Dave;
Original picture. You are telling a story of the Tarot card reader and the cemetery. Converging lines into the centre of the picture, great, really sucks you in.
Perhaps open details within the converging lines with a graduated feeling, so that as you go deeper, more is exposed. That way we know without being told what the background is.
Above is a discussion idea only...Have fun
Your thoughts?

Absolutely Ed !!! I'll keep that in mind and maybe rework the composite. Either way thou, I still would have mentioned the background, someone probably still wouldn't have make the connection.

Proof once again that multiple versions are possible with the same subject. She was quite beautiful in an ethereal way, so there was no way to go wrong with her. I noticed the guy who had twisted to look at her. You zoomed right in on her. Different chapters in the same story.

A composite of a tarot card reader in New Orleans. The composite consists of the tarot reader and Lafayette Cemetery No.1 as the background. After some extensive internet searching, I discovered that the tarot reader goes by the name 'Duchess the Fortune Teller'. This is a link to an interview with her in May 2018. https://www.bookpackers.com/nola-studen ... hic-lalala

This composite wasn't what I had in mind when I first started, which was a color full body image. Once I finished with that one I made the decision for a B&W conversion with a textured layer added. Maybe the color version will be next, but for now, thoughts and comments on this would be much appreciated.
