Orangutan

Dinar the orangutan is visually striking and has an emotive face. The image was constructed by converting the orangutan image to black and white and editing the fur around the edge of his beard. Then I shot a marble headstone and duplicated that image into different layers, played around with the opacity and changed the orientation, before finally painting it across the layers to get the right look.

This photo is a finalist in the Altered Images category of our 14th Annual Photo Contest. See all 70 finalists here.
