About the Image(s)

At the California State Fair, there is an endless supply of photos to take at any time. These girls were adorable and so much fun to watch. I thought that it would be cute to have them teaching the alpacas a bit of ballet.
Composited in Photoshop. Only 6 layers, hah hah!

Kathy, This image is delightful and beautifully crafted. I love how you've handled the violet hues and created such a complex and compelling backdrop for the subjects. Alpacas, ballerinas and butterflies couldn't make for a more happy image. I really like how you've positioned the girls so they are engaged with the animals. I have nothing to add except anticipation of your next months creation.   Posted: 06/06/2020 13:18:30

Thank you Brad! I'm so glad you like this. It's part of a series that will be shown in a Roseville Gallery next month. I love going to the fair with my camera and am sad that everything is cancelled this year.   Posted: 06/07/2020 21:47:39

I love the layers! The brick just adds enough texture and I am so glad you turned the llamas heads. Good color and composition and great creativity.   Posted: 06/10/2020 21:48:50

This is a wonderful whimsical image Kathy. You have blended in the colors of the girls' dresses into the whole image. The expressions on the alpacas are great and the monarch butterflies and a touch of whimsy. You really worked all the layers into a unified whole. I wish I could see your show in Roseville.   Posted: 06/15/2020 15:19:44

Kathy, this is adorable. Everything really comes together in sort of a dreamy image, perfect for a little girl's room. Congrats on the series!   Posted: 06/15/2020 23:23:25
