    Another mask shot

    In addition to the two masks we picked up in Florence, my older daughter was in Italy last year and picked up a more traditional Venetian carnival mask. The model (i.e. younger daughter) thought that she did not look evil enough, so I did a bit of PP work to give the image a bit more of an edgy look.

    This is the reworked shot:

    Another mask shot


    And this is the original out of the camera version.

    Reworked shot does it for me. I think it's the complimentary skintones (to the mask) around the eyes that sets it off.

    Your daughter was right that she didn't look evil enough in the original version and your response with the revised version complies perfectly with her request. A really wonderful image.

    I'm curious about what gave you the idea to make her eye red. It works perfectly and I'm very confident that I would not have thought of such a great idea.

    Now the question: are you concerned that your daughter is asking you to make her look more evil?

    Mike - I showed my daughter your question and the answer was "everyone knows red eyes are evil" . I guess you and I are too old to know that.

    Reason for the evil image - she wanted a new picture for her Facebook image.

    True Colin. I never saw the point of paying good money to have the crap scared out of me at a movie.

    Immediately after reading in this thread that I'm apparently clueless when it comes to all things considered about red eyes, I came across this CiC thread: Small Game Notice the second photo.

    You'd be OK

    I'd recommend it - it was truly a classic And you'll never fail to associate red eyes with evil ever again!

    Mike - I remember seeing the ground squirrels in Namibia at Etosha. I'll have to be frank, I did not notice their eyes....
