This photo has been around for a while. I've always struggled with how to present it. I was in Arizona a couple of years ago during the Christmas holidays, and we went to a Pow Wow in Tucson on New Year's Eve - during the day. Like most Arizona days, the sky was cloudless bright blue, and while I liked the overal face and capture here, I always thought the blue sky made it feel like more of a snap shot. Since I'm doing an upcoming tutorial for the Bay Area Photo Club on textures and edges, I've been experimenting with various techniques for blending layers and masking. Please feel free to comment, especially on the texture - does it help or is it a distraction?
