This entry was semi-inspired by Crazy Coulee and Little Lacey's blog.
After I auto corrected white balance & increased the levels.
After I duplicated the layer, desaturated new layer, added layer mask (white), and painted Stella's eye black.
After I added a filter (artistic->softglow)
I put the coolest one first, because I'm still trying to get the second set right. This second image was also shot from the hip.
After I desaturated the image, added a new (transparent) layer, and painted Stella's eye blue with a round brush. I also changed the layer settings to "burn."
I highly recommend GIMP. It rocks. Yeah.
