Default Seeing Double: Snake Family Album

DH found a nest of baby garter snakes today and I had fun photographing them. Basic background, select (oval)-copy-and-paste the baby snake, added circle layer behind that, merged those two and tweaked the color (not happy with it but I love the pics!)

Monkey, it's clear to me that you have a talent for processing and creating dynamic photographic creations. Your imagination is perhaps your most worthy attribute, and everything else comes together because "that" is your general. Keep up the excellent work!

Nice. What if you were to try it again but put the baby snake in the end of a bottle that was lying on the ground?

Normcar, you are right to a degree - my intentions are often better than my executions because of my imagination.

Ferny, thanks for the input. This is definately one for "back to the drawing board" because I'm just not happy with it. We'll see how much playtime I have left today after I get life out of the way.

Better? You really have to look to see Baby - the way it was in real life.

Oh, isn't that quaint?!? I never noticed the markings look like he is smiling. Must have recognized the camera and decided to ham it up.
