shadow/highlights, sharpen, convert to b/w with calculations, blend the b/w with the color (soft light mode, I think). hue/saturation to toy with the colors a bit. a poem to explain everything:


the king of forks

you are rounded. one thinks
of a pound cake sliding down
one's rippling throat.
one gloats in the bath
of a mirror's moat. one is the king of forks

and he, pointed, pokes.
you crumble just in tines.

I would not have pegged this as a posthumous photo. Always good to be surprised. A very fun whimsy photo. I think the yellow/green/red combination really brings it to life.

That little rascal gets around. Interesting but strange. But I'm guessing I'm not the first one to tell you that.

I still think this is funny and I am glad I commented on it during the challenge and I gave this a 7. I really liked what you did with the background - looks almost like a watercolor painting.

I thought this was you but didn't go back to see if the Fork thing from before was you. Good to see he still has a life, and from the looks of things, has moved up in the world.

Very funny - I think it's the paper napkin that ultimately wins me over.
