I could have done a nice, pretty Puzzle Macro this week, but what fun is that? So I decided to use my troll (leftover from the 1970s) and a couple of my Woodies to set up a scene. The bridge is a wooden toy for a couple of my rabbits, and underneath the bridge is some aluminum foil holding water, some leaves, and a couple of weeds on a jelly roll cake pan. A birthday candle stuck to the Woody's hand with a couple of drops of wax and a cocktail fork comprise the rest of the props. Shot on my kitchen table with light from the window and a single desk lamp for fill light.

PP - converted from RAW, cropped, levels, white balance, cloned out some bright spots in the background and the troll's braid (looked like a random purple blur where there shouldn't be one), dodged and colored pitchfork, colored candle purple, colored purple reflection on troll pinker, increased saturation and contrast, colored yellow bits of bridge to match the rest, resized, sharpened with slight noise reduction.
