Sphinx myself by Kerstin Köneke

November 2019 - Sphinx myself

About the Image(s)

During our September vacation I took some pictures with my smartphone at the day day we’ve visited “Schloß (= Palace) Rheinsberg” in Brandenburg. I saw this nice sphinx like sculpture and gave here at home my face with the help of PS + a little vintage look. Don’t I have a “regal” touch now? ;-)

Wow! What an unusual selfie! I like the vignetting which concentrates the main subject. I might be inclined to select a slightly warmer tone. Maybe you could sell your local optician
a copy for their shop window!   Posted: 11/12/2019 05:27:04

A very clever idea and your face well mergerged with the sphinx. I too would like to see a touch of sepia tone which I think would match the old stonework.   Posted: 11/16/2019 03:29:24

Cool idea to Sphinx yourself. It certainly makes you stop to take a look at what's happening in this image.   Posted: 11/17/2019 06:37:08

So very clever, Kerstin! Your blend is excellent and the expression on your face matches so well with the sphinx. The sepia tone and sketch effect really finish the concept well. This would make for a great postcard or greeting card! Bravo! d:¬{D   Posted: 11/21/2019 16:55:00
