This image was also the result of an exploratory process in photoshop via the curves tool. By maniuplating the colors and light of the photo with this tool, I was able to take the background from a dark, "boring" background to an area of the photo that now draws in the eye and leaves the viewer confused. The background now commands the attention of the viewer completely changes the feel and composition of the photo. The somewhat surreal quality of the image leaves the viewer curious as to what could be happening in the new dynamic yet strange background.
This is the original unedited image captured from my camera.
