This image was created by the fertile mind of Bernie Hynes. It won a Yellow Ribbon in the recent 2015 FCCC 2nd Triannual Competition - Class A Creative Print.
Mystical Encounter is a composite of five images.
The background is an image of the Banyon trees at the Edison estate in Ft Meyers taken on a field trip and processed with the Topaz simplify and cartoon filters.
The main character was an actor in costume who posed for me at the Sarasota Medievil Fair.
The horse and crystal ball are decorative statuettes.
Lastly the dragon is a plastic toy on the shelf at Hobby Lobby taken with my cell phone.
This image was an exercise in detail for me. I experimented creating shadows for the main subjects, a reflection in the crystal ball and learned to create smoke in Photoshop.
