Default I Don't Want

I've been in doubt whether to post it on People or on Digital Modified Images.
I dediced for People cause it mainly deals with them.

The original shot has been on my hard disk for a lot of time.
I have taken it during the very first days of my holidays.
I took it at 12:00 am when the pool was empty.
My child has some bath and then didn't want to swin any more and stood still in front of the the pool.
I took the shot cause it had a strong impact : this child alone with the empty pool in front of him.
However the original colour and the composition did not convinced me completly.

This is another variation of that shot ( with a different meaning ).



P.S. :
Layer 0:
- original shot
- automatic levels
- automatic contrast
- desaturation

Layer 3 :
- copy and paste of the child
- selective hue changing in order to convert the original cyan and green colours to orange and yellow ( which made a better opposition to the Matrix green color ).
- a soft white outer glow around

Layer 2:
- copy and paste of two screenshots of a Matrix Screensaver ( do all of you know that by pressing the Print Key you can copy to the Clipboard what's currently on the screen and, for instance, using it to paste it to a layer of PhotoShop ?)
- the two screenshots have been joined into one layer setting them side by side for a big horizontal dimension
- applied perspective, skew, free transformation to have an appropropriate perspective of the falling lines
- layer blend mode set to multiply mode so that the original water waves are visible, opacity set to 75%.

Layer 3:
- A duplication of Layer 0
- selection and erasing of the water part so that Matrix (Layer 2) can be seen and water (Layer 1) as of Layer 2 Multiply mode.

Default Very well done!!!!!!!!!!

Very nice work. You made sure it does'nt reflect water, but it surely reflects creativity

You've done a good job in Photoshop.
