Mannaquin, altered photo

Playing around with a mannaquin image shot at the marvelous ARTpool Gallery in St. Petersburg. I flattened the image by pushing the contrast, highlight and shadows to the ends of the scale, creating a less detailed surface. Then I applied the Lomo filter from Topaz Labs, making it look sepia, vintage and edgy all at once. I like the stuff in the background playing across the flat look of the profile, and the detail in the jewelry. This kind of altering, using filters and pushing the lighting levels takes only a few minutes and gives you many options for one good photograph.
