  4. Lovely image and quite unique! Wordless Wednesday has me wondering how you did it! 🙂

    • Oh, thank you so much for this comment and compliment Denise!

      How I did it. Monday is cleaning day and while putting things back on my bathroom sink vanity I saw the reflection of my Mermaid sculpture in the little make-up mirror and dropped everything, jumped over the vacuum cleaner, the quickly went to get my camera while the inspiration was hot! 🙂

      I used the macro 1:2 function of my old 28-105 at 105mm I wanted the reflection sharp and the rest of frame blurred. I clicked a few frames. I zoomed out with my feet a bit and change the angle to this clicked a couple more, and then uploaded the images to my computer.
      My little make-up mirror really does say ” I’m so Fancy”, but it was outside the circle of confusion and out of focus, so I cloned it out, then added a Text Layer , found a font very similar to it, typed it out then curved it to match the curve of the mirror like mine does.

      After that I wanted to make it more artsy so I added a vintage preset with a white border, then added 3 textures that I hope look like water or the sea in the background.

      That’s pretty much how I did it. 🙂

  5. Good stuff! She is SO fancy!

  6. So cool.

  7. Oh, I love this!

  8. Nice!

  9. Oh I really like this, Deborah. What a wonderful composition!

  10. Beautiful and beautifully edited, Deborah. Happy Wednesday.


  11. I love that photo, Deborah. I love it when reflections show more than the actual object. I don’t recall ever seeing that effect in a mirror image. Nicely done!

  12. Where’s the LOVE button? WONDERFUL photograph!
