Surreal because part of me couldn't tell if this is an actual photo or it's a really good 3D rendering. Or if it's a mannequin or a real person. Looks real, but there's something just really different about it. Maybe it's the facial expression. Hence, a little surreal. But now after looking at it for a while, I know what you did there. It's just the face that's altered.
I have been lurking in your gallery and just found this. Besides the subject being very hot and eye catching, the photo itself is interesting in how the colors are slightly muted to give it a particular softness. It is hard to describe but it is very noticeable. Nice work here
good morning..or .........thanks.....you lurker ! LOL
the whole outfit, except for the leggings has been weathered... by washing repeatedly and "wirebrushed" .....and I did blur the photo ....and try to soften the background also.... I like the muted effect. .....I have to fix the cloak/cape somewhat (in real time) it has a few tears in it..... I super glued a bead to my forehead here...never again ! +
