Hello. 5th May and number 125 in the ongoing 365 image mega series.
The hand holding the key is mine and that part of the shot was taken tonight at home. It had levels adjustment and a high pass filter layer at five pixels. It was converted to black and white and placed onto a texture layer and blended using hard light twice. Some erasing was used to blend it into the background. The picture of the face was taken a few weeks ago and it’s a shot of Toby who poses for me sometimes, even when he doesn’t want to! Cheers, mate. Anywho, that was also blended twice using hard light and partially erased. The whole thing was again converted to black and white (the texture layer had a slight sepia tone that didn’t work) and that was that.
