I’ll do almost anything for a photograph. However, I won’t lie down in freezing cold water and get soaked without the proper gear. That’s something I can simulate in the digital darkroom while working in my warm and cozy studio.

To create the watery effect, I applied the Flaming Pear Flood filter (www.flamingpear.com) to the photograph, which was taken in the sub-Arctic when the temperature was -35° F. Cool, don’t you think? I darkened the sky with the Graduated Filter in Photoshop CS4.

As you experiment with plug-ins, try to think outside the box and let your imagination go wild—and awaken the artist within.
