I have received (and continue to receive!) so many wonderful comments about the pics I posted for the Stacking project that I thought it might be fun to do a quick post showing the befores...and the afters of each photograph. I'm not going to discuss how I did each...just they where all taken with a Nikon D90 camera (RAW files) and edited using Photoshop CS4 and layers...things like contrast, saturation, black and white, etc. No real "recipe"...mostly by the seat of my pants which is the way I like doing things....

I feel that the "before" images have a beauty and power all of their own...just as do the "after" images....each showing the decay and change that this book went through. Looking at each, I also feel that they stand on their own as a statement...different statements and impressions. Which is the power of photography!
I hope you like these....have a great week!!
