Peeling

Ah, the magic of editing. I ended up taking two photos that I had only marked as 2-star in Bridge and turning them into something kinda neat. I was tempted to use a layer mask to isolate the peeling effect to his skin, but in the end I thought it was better to have the effect all over the photo. I hoped that the peeling would be most obvious on his skin, but would cause the viewer to wonder and look a little deeper – is it his skin that is peeling, or the canvas itself?
