Yes, you've seen this before only slightly different. Basically, it's same same but different.
I continued my exploration of photoshop during my ill weekend. I confess I was getting nowhere until I came across this tutorial on this blog (thanks guys!). Regardless of the fact that my photos (or the light in my photos or anything in my photos, really!) look nothing like theirs, I followed the steps anyway. This gave me a nice starting point to figure out what did what to what; I played with different colours, hid layers, added layers and whatever else. When I finally got tired of it all, I settled for the version shown above (from this original and this first play). And you know what? Moi ♥ it. How about you? [insert scared face here as moi wonders how sad it would look if none of my five readers were to comment on this… sigh]
little note: Dobbin likes it not. but it is ok. this time.
