Experimental Images : A Glimpse of Marilyn


A Glimpse of Marilyn

A passerby glances at the revealing statue of Marilyn Monroe as he strides across the Pioneer Plaza Courtyard. The image was made with the Nikon 1 V1 and post processed in Lightroom 4 and then manipulated in Photoshop 5.1.

The background layer of the image was duplicated and placed on top. Next the background layer was converted into a solarized image with the find edge command added afterwards to create the special effect.

Finally the top layer was tuned into a layer mask with the hide all command. Then by slowly painting back in the area where the passerby  is shown the effect is completed.
