Was fooling around manipulating a photo trying to make a collage when I noticed that if a few slight changes were made, the image would closely resemble an enlarged version of a certain obscure digi-artist.

So I nudged it in that direction. Photoshop Elements 2

Uhhh yep, please don't tell.

Dena, thanks. I am reminded why I don't do photo-manips. They are fun but the never end as the possibilities are infinite. Still playing 5 hours later and who knows how many images.

An explosion of 'Neonic' colours !

Actually it is really good to see a few self portraits happening - accidental or not :D Hope we get to see more of them.

Hi Veronica, always enjoy your take, be it on my work or that of some one else. Glad you connected.

Manips are obsessive for me, I am still at it. I think this is my fave.

Wow. You're addicted.
Hmmm.....I really like the latest comp minus the mid segment which loses me.
The fractured images grab me. My ab fab fav as well. I'm off to bed. You keep playing for both of us.

Yep Mary, jewel tones are your weakness; the secret is out;)

Aurora...you would be surprised. The second version really does look like me with just a little artistic license. But animals love me!
