My lovely girlfriend (and fellow tog, Purple_Girl) is the model for this one, probably why we chose a purple balloon. After looking up lots of Palindromes I though this one might at least get a wee chuckle.. lol

Lighting is from 2 studio lights with white umbrellas, hence the reflections in the balloon lol.

Editing: Cropped a little, cloned out a few small blemishes on my girlfriends face, adjusted colour balance a little, adjusted brightness and contrast using levels, topaz denoise 4, resized for challange then topaz sharpen.

I really like the way your picture represent the palindrom, and the model's expressivity do the rest. Very nice job!

Nice photo. It almost looks like there is an alien inside the balloon, guess the reflection of lights? Also, the look is almost evil, which adds character to the photo. Nice palindrome depiction.

Fabulously done.
