The Fly

By ivalyn
This may seem to be an uninteresting image but there's a little story attached to it
When i took the picture there was a quarter of the top left wing missing so in Photoshop i extended the canvas at the top then i cloned a portion of the top right wing flipped it and then grafted it onto the left wing
Then cloned the rear left leg and part of the front left leg flipped them and grafted them onto the righthand side of the body i then applied a preset to give the spotlight effect
You may say why didn't you take another picture of the correct pose but due to euthanasia with copy of the "Times" by another prevented this
Sometimes you only get one chance to take a good image before you lose the subject this exercise was to try and salvage that image from that chance
Hope you find this story interesting
