The Mask by Dennis Hirning, FPSA, MPSA, SAWIEP

November 2020 - The Mask

About the Image(s)

I used this mask a few days ago and it was still laying on my desk when I saw that the topic of Mask was coming up in the 365 Day Galaxy. I thought that I might be able to do something different with it. It was laying on a CD envelope and I liked the looks but not with the glasses folded. I couldn't see a way to take the temples off so I ended up standing the CD upright and putting the glasses on it. I did some noise removal with Topaz Denoise AI and other corrections with Luminar 4, mainly to get the color closer to what it actually was.

How creative. Sharp, contrasting colors good. Perhaps a bit better with more diffused lighting, allowing a decrease in
shadows.   Posted: 11/05/2020 17:58:58

Adorable image. Will I be jailed if I steal the idea one of these days?

It is a lot easier to breath with this than the other kind. :)

It made me chuckle which I think shows it's impact. I have nothing to add that would make it better.   Posted: 11/16/2020 15:09:58

<chuckle> Making the best of what is available,spontaneous randomness. A little hot in the lower right hand corner and the reflection. Creative.   Posted: 11/18/2020 14:49:25

Haha! Very creative and does bring a smile and a chuckle, so has impact. This would be a great profile image on a Facebook or Instagram page.   Posted: 11/24/2020 16:53:05

That's an idea. I might just have to change my image.
