Paris, France – Optimus Prime Lens

Here is Optimus Prime Lens (a new Transformer?)  Sometimes a little photoshop fun can lead to something artistic!  I was working a photo from Paris a bit ago and came up with this shot.  What could it be a Transformer?  Alien?  A robot from Logan’s Run?  Funky indeed!  If you look closely you may get it….so here is the original…

A carousel right near the Eiffel Tower!   A long exposure blurred the ride.  The Eiffel Tower are the arms!  I used the plugin called Flood to mirror the photo and created something fun!   Flood is a cool plug in.  You can create some water effects and/or an exact mirror effect like I used in this shot.    Have fun and let your in inner artist create photo magic!
