My first foray into Expert Editing. I'm nervous as there are many fantastic photos for the EE challenges everytime I look. Obviously, I am not letting that deter me. My original idea for this challenge fell through, due to time constraints, and then as I was walking through our work bathroom I suddenly realized just how creepy the place looked in general. I grabbed my camera at lunch, took a picture of the stall, then a picture of my arm, and then my hand grabbing the top of the stall. Did some basic distortion work to make the restroom seem more claustrophic, added some changes to hue and sat--both in RAW and the JPEG. The cloning to perfect the stitching of the arm and hand to the toilet was a lot more challenging on this shot than I had imagined. . .but, I really like the end effect. Don't know if it is up to competition caliber for EE shots here, but let's roll the dice.

The perspective adds a lot to some of the creepiest entries in this challenge and this one is no exception. Congratulations on the top ten.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

The green hue project an errie and scary mood which complements the subject of the photo. This is one bathroom stall that I would take one quick glance at and then do a quick step out of the room.
