A lovely follow-up to my "April Fools" submission from earlier this year. This is originally one photo -- I was standing beside the microwave. I obviously cloned myself into the oven and added some grid lines, etc.

I also cloned out tons of crap, like the electrical cord that sticks out of the back, unwanted shadows in the corner, etc. I added a little haze to my head to make it look like it was being lit from inside the microwave. And I used the "liquify" effect in Photoshop to bulge my eyes, nose and mouth a bit. I wanted to make my nose look as though it was pressed up against the glass, too.

Now I'm getting hungry! :)

Hahaha, very funny. This would work if the head was a little more cooked, I can see it's starting to expand :) A 6 to start

funny shot...love the look on the face! Would be nicer without the grid lines on the microwave door but obviously that couldn't be helped.
