Heart Stone


In Your Heart 1

Heart’s Desire

Continuing my series of blended photos, this week I present three versions of an image for your perusal and judgement.

The first one, above, has the figure almost totally encased withtin the stone, with the heart-shaped hole acting like a window to the woman.

In the image below, I changed the layering to show more of the figure and clothing to make it appear like she is resting on the now softened landscape.

Finally I present a black and white version of the second layering. Generally I like strong contrast in my black and white images but I like the softness and glow in this one.

So what say you? Do you prefer one over the other? What makes it resonate for you?

Have an awesome weekend with your heart’s desire and take in the Aurora Borealis tonight if you’re in the right zones!
