Photoshop Class: Abstract Response/Gestalt - Esmeralda

Picking most striking and energetic thumbnails from all of four PS files, and experimenting with layering techniques - playing with dissolve, hue, saturation, luminosity, darkness, etc. Stretching squares horizontally, vertically and in more complex ways manually [distorting dimensions and seeing perspective opportunities], before using Magic Wand tool to carve out any shapes spilling out of each of four squares:
Really enjoyed creating overall distorting yet exciting and energetic environment through stretching and playing with colour; capturing spirit of Esmeralda's streaming water canals and probable surrounding sunny beach/exotic environment. Need to use such technique more often in thumbnail exercises [up to first 100 for OGR!]
