    Day 68 of 365 days.

    Ever since I started this project, I had the idea that sooner or later I wanted to do a picture where I cloned myself. They've been quite popular on Flickr lately. But I didn't want to do one just for the sake of doing one. I wanted to make sure I had a really clever idea first. Then, last week, fellow flickr photographer and 365er, the lovely and talented Rachel Sian, out and out challenged me to make my own clone picture. So I was stuck. I couldn't very well turn down the challenge (I'm no punk, you see), but I didn't want to clone myself without a super original idea. Then it hit me. I didn't have to clone me. Why should I, when it would totally be much cuter to clone Steph. And in doing so, I have decide to copycat Rachel's own picture from two weeks ago.

    Too bad its only a Photoshop trick. Two Steph's are much better than one. And if I could really clone her, I could sell them and make gazillions... and the world would be a much better place.

      Thank you everyone. I'm glad you all like it. Especially Rachel, since it was her idea originally.

      @sabogel: please let me know when you do

      @pi c's: I look forward to seeing one of these from you sooner or later.

      This is great! I really do need to play with this cloning thing -- learn how to. I have no excuse other than time -- it looks like you must spend a lot of time on the PP side of things, whereas my contrast/color/sharpness/exposure changes -- when I make changes at all -- don't take very long.

      @phlewght: oh, I edit pretty much everything in one way or the other. At least to do color correction. But this one didn't take long for the cloning. Maybe an hour or two? Of course now I look at it and see things I don't like and wish I had taken more time with it. *sigh*
