15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
A skeletal dragonfly

The day was gloomy and I was both the photographer and the prop (since my finger is in the photo). It was definitely a juggling act to balance the focus and lighting to get this image. This image was the only one with sharp focus since the dragonfly wasn't moving at this point. I accidentally misplaced the dodge layer during editing and ended up with a very interesting highlight/outline effect.
