About the Image(s)

The original image was taken using my android phone.

In post-production, I used Lightroom, Photoshop, and Topaz.

I used multiple layers of blending, curves, solid colors, liquidify. & filters

Topaz filters: color me grunge, Monet, Turner, sketch

A most unusual perspective ! I had to really stare at this for a moment or two to really 'see' it. Think I prefer the original colors...   Posted: 03/10/2020 14:16:19

I take it that this image is in response to the devastation of the koala population from the fires and the destruction of their habitat. A major tragedy from which we all hope they will recover. It certainly takes a while to interpret the final image, which seems to have had all the filters ever created thrown at it. I think it is a very personal work, and perhaps not one to need outside critique.   Posted: 03/10/2020 14:30:47

Certainly a very creative piece of work. I keep wanting to rotate the image 45 degrees counter-clockwise so that I get the feeling the eeys are looking at me not staring away to the left.   Posted: 03/10/2020 15:13:01

Novel. I feel better if it was "facing" towards the camera rather than to the left.   Posted: 03/15/2020 09:32:21

Thank you all for your comments and support.
To change the way the koala faces is interesting.
Stay Safe everyone.   Posted: 03/20/2020 02:20:25
