Cosy Together


A bunch of little monkeys packed together. Mainly because it was too chilly and they didn't feel safe.


TECH-INFO: a single JPG shot, slightly improved in Photoshop. The monkeys have more contrast using the high pass filter (copy layer, high pass filter with radius 14 pixels, blend in overlay mode, paint on the mask to expose only the animals), the background is slightly more blurred and desaturated, the leaves behind the animals are a bit more saturated, the red and yellow colors are enhanced and also vignetting is added. Al done using masked adjustment layers.
Paining on the masks is really handy and easy using a tablet, like Wacom. Especially support for pen pressure sensitivity is much better in Windows 7 than it was in XP. At least Photoshop doesn't forget my presets anymore.
