Santa was very, very nice to me this year. He brought me a new camera! It’s a lot more complicated than my previous camera, and I was immediately struck by how much I needed to learn and how much fun I’d have finding out what it could do.

Particularly if the photograph is then taken into Photoshop and tweaked a bit. Above is my final product, with a bit of artistic license inside Photoshop. Here’s the original shot:



What do you think? Are they both art? Neither? Are you a big fan of only original photographs, or do you like to see new art created from a photographic base? Are you curious how I did it?
