  1. Interesting. Not sure how the quote fits the image, but it’s interesting.
    Do you mind telling us how and how many exposures you merged into this final image?


    1. The image is a composite of three layers, two of which are purely textures (the cracks and fissures; the radial beams of light centered on the left eye).
      The quote was appropriate, I felt, because an awakening of any significance should bring about change and transformation, and I had hoped the image also reflects transformation.

  2. the crackle effect is really cool – and even before I read you reply above I loved how the photo had even more depth as you chewed on that potent quote – and then reading your reply added to it – and really so true! nice pairing 🙂
