Escape by Aurelia24 Escape by Aurelia24
I climb up high to escape my insanity,
Only to fall tumbling back into my reality.

Update: Ok, since many of you have asked (and also attacked me), I did not photomanipulate the reflection. All I did on photoshop was desaturate the image, up the contrast, dodge the right side of the image where my curtains were, and then I cropped the image.

How did I get the reflections then? Trial and error.
I took many shots standing next to a huge window, and altered the angle in which I stood so that I'd get a variety of shots, and after around 150+ images, this is what I got. Also, the darker the eyes are, the more reflective they are, and mine are brown, so yeah.

Wow! This is an incredible photograph! The detail and crispness to the image is amazing,
and to be in black and white really adds an elegance to the image.

This is absolutely stunning. Would you mind if I used this as a reference to practice my pencil drawing skills? Of course I would quote and reference you as the original author of the artwork etc? :)
