Leo up close & abstract

Our Leo is the most beautiful and the sweetest cat I know.  He’s one of my favorite photo models, and I like to showcase him from time to time.  And it’s time again.  The first one, made today,  needs no explanation, but the second is the result of a new technique that I recently found by following links from the websites of other photographers whose work I am enjoying.  I made it using the image of him that I posted on November 17.  Here’s a link to the site where it’s described.  The details could be somewhat better explained, but I was able to figure it out.  If you have any problems, I may be able to help.  Try it!

      Thanks, Mike! When you try the twirl, (at least) one explanation is less than clear. In the step after you set the Blending Mode to Lighten, go to the locked background layer and click on it; open the Layers menu and select Merge Visible. This technique is great fun!
