This photo is one of my favorites because I know where it came from, what happened afterward and it still shakes my mind. New technology gives rise to the idea that one can't believe his own eyes. Photo editing software can create whatever the mind can dream.
For example, the upper picture is the initial cropped portion from an original scene. The lower one is the desired portion of the first selection which was then placed on a fractal using the color selection tool to match the fractal color to the boy's shirt.

Not to pretend I'm speedy, this took some great time and many errors but it was well worth it. The fully edited photo was published in I Love Cats Magazine.
Actually, it was one of my first digital photos and one of my first fractals. Sometimes, I think I'm too easily pleased.
