Sunday morning, my son had changed out of his pj's and left his Sponge Bob shirt inside-out. I went to pick them up and noticed "Sponge Bob" looking out of the neck line. Bing, bing, bing! A little rearranging and here it is. Used natural window light to illuminate this. Almost wished I had moved it to a controlled environment now as the color balance was very hard to get on this (shaded areas going blue, exposed to sun areas yellowing up). Some curves and color temp adj's helped some, but still not 100% satisfied. If this was advanced it would be a simple fix. Oh well. Crossing my fingers anyway. :-)

In retrospect - I butchered the colors on this. I'd been better off submitting the original after looking at it again. A tweak here, a tweak there...sometimes takes you down the wrong path. Ah well...tomorrow's another day. :-)
