"The Fire Inside" (9-2-09 6432v9) was just tortured out of an old photo. For a few days now, I've been trying to develop a pic for use in my Seasons Greeting email, but with no success so far. However, I am developing an occasional pic along the way that I like for other use, as here. This is one of them. Not sure what tickles me about it. Maybe just that it finally looks somewhat balanced. I've morphed several other very different versions, most of which have a visual balance problem. Ah well, start with an out of balance pic -- which the original is -- and where else would I expect to wind up? :-) It took a lot of careful cropping, re-coloring, re-adjusting of contrasts, and applications of filters to balance this one out to my satisfaction. But I hasten to add, it's all fun and keeps these aging brain cells awake and curious.
