I just looked at your workflow. It blows my mind how much work you put into these. No wonder they are great!

Who says there aren't aliens on our planet! You capture them every day! Wow! I feel like I just shrank and landed in the backyard lawn like in the movie "Honey who shrunk the kids". And from the looks of it, I'd better run for my life. Awesome sci-fi feeling - and I love sci-fi!

Brilliant work - Love it.

Although goodness knows what sort of fevered imagination would think that animals lead secret lives . . .

These are amazing captures, Roz, you've actually taken us into another world, I'm beginning to feel like I know these guys! Your PP or whatever it is you're doing is spectacular. This goes beyond photography, you've created a new artform. Do I see a childrens' book coming?

I like this even better than '... this is the plan..'
So anthropomorphic. I love the tones in this. B&W adjustment layer is something I've never tried ( or thought of. )

Hahaha... Roz, you are brilliant. I love the story the image tells... I'll think of this the next time one of my kids asks to play on the computer or to go to a friends place for a sleep over. :)

very steely look. the unusual personified posing is great.

LOL This is great!! i really enjoy this Roz. There seems to be something special to your B&W conversion. It has a silver screen feel, like a 50's movie.

HAHA Love how this tells that story. I feel like I'm sitting at the drive-in watching an award winning short and this is a frame from it.
