You'll probably find this a weird facial expression. Can't blame you.

This is actually two images into one, both sides of the face are in fact twice my left side...

I took two foto's, one smiling and a second frowning while I was testing portrait shooting yesterday (see workshop for originals).

Inverted the frowning and pasted both as two layers into one. A third layer with adjusted perspective was necessary to get the left side of the mouth right but I must admit with a bit extra work, it is open to improvement. Erased all the unnecessary bits with a smooth eraser with limited coverage. Changed tint, contrast etc. a bit to give it a more eery look. Didn't mingle too much with the darker line in the middle to accentuate the split.

This is funny and weird, you're right :)) original idea and good pp work Patrick..


Very cool! I love your inventiveness with the PP work - a very odd, eclectic, surprising expression created out of these morphed images, and you've managed to get the white balance looking more natural this time, too.

I think the non-alignment of your eyes is the wierdest bit ...


Hi Patrick.
This is very creative. This expression is really weird.
You have a great PP skills. Thanks for sharing your ideas and knowledge.

Bonjour Patrick
Bien fait et très marrant; les gens semblent durs à dérider sur TL...
