inspired by the first photo I ever marked as a favorite. it was by 21_F.gif jaded_youth. couldn't match it exactly, but that wasn't really the point.

some supplies from Walmart (fabric, red tights, and a new black dress).

pp - curves layers for to get the whites and blacks., slight rotate and crop. soft light layer to add some lightness to her black dress. a little liquify and cloning to fix a wrinkle. cloned out her index finger which was pointing right in the middle of that nice v-shape of her legs (and was distracting). resize, add border, save for web. last minute touch-up with a selective color layer to remove slight magenta cast to the top of her hair.

Wow, great graphic image. Way to capture the viewers attention. And the legs form the triangle of good design. 10
