Challenge: Break the Rules (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: 2014
Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: Nikon AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8D IF-ED
Location: Buena Park, CA
Date: Dec 23, 2014
Date Uploaded: Dec 24, 2014

Model: Elaine Hughes - my very talented artist friend. And her little buddy, Diddy.

And of course, the rule I broke was CLONING!!!!!!

When I last saw Elaine, her hair was really short, and would have been a breeze to get all spiky. As it was this long, it took a LOT of effort to get the spikes, and they needed some extra "populating".

I had a very tough time getting both Elaine and Diddy in focus, and in the end decided to emphasize the differing focal points rather than try to fix it.

And yeah, Diddy was SOOOOOOO cute.

Nice selective focus and a funny shot. I don't know what rule you broke. I would have replaced the background LOL

Tough call guessing on this one. Either the hands holding the porcupine were from another capture (if so, good job on it), or it might be outside the date range?

voted earlier... back to guess. I'll say the blue in the background is cloning out other unwieldy elements.
Cute pic! Love the resemblance.

Cute. This made me smile. I'll guess the shallow DOF was added in PP and was the broken rule.

I'm guessing the rule you broke was date deadline for challenge
