About the Image(s)

I noticed these tree roots that looked like they needed an eye. I ended
up mirror imaging them and adding eyeballs. The I tried filter distort
polar coordinates for the circular version. Ultimately I ended up
cropping for the mermaid creature

Very cleverly put together Lisa. I was wondering how you produced those glowing eyes. I thought the edge round the face created by the leaves reminded me of the rim of a basket.   Posted: 11/11/2023 15:41:10

Lisa, All of these images are mesmerizing. I have always been intrigued by pareidolia and find your images hypnotic. Nicely done   Posted: 11/13/2023 12:59:07

Lisa, This image shows that you have the 'Seeing Eye' of a photographer and someone who has the technical skills to take the visual story to a higher level. I like the way that the three original images have been combined and evolved into the face of a primordial beast emerging from its slumbers in a wicker basket. Your use of Polar Coordinates has been well controlled to create the realistic facial features. Like Hazel, I would be interested to know how you created the eyes   Posted: 11/15/2023 11:11:39

Hi Lisa, very cleaver on how you came up with the idea from the original image and ended up with the final result. A credit to your imagination. Well done   Posted: 11/19/2023 02:48:40

Hi Lisa,
Clever and interesting image. I might play around with the background color a bit, perhaps a brown or black?   Posted: 11/19/2023 11:14:41
