I took up J. Harris Blacklist's challenge to use one of his photos and incorporate it into one of my own.

Here's the link to his photo:

This is what I did:
1. I copied the original 3 times and rotated all copies to form a single picture. This almost created a perfect flower since the original picture was about fourth of the flower.

2. I adjusted contrast to bring out the yellows.

3. I cut around the flower to get rid of the black.

4. I layered the flower onto my son's eye, making sure that it matched his iris. I played around with the opacity for a more subtle effect.

5. I desaturated the picture of the eye.

6.Added dodge and burn throughout the composite photograph.

7.Used unsharp mask

Thanks, J. Harris, for the idea. I enjoyed working on this.
