Have had this photo for a long time. Date on back says 1851. Doesn't look that old too me, so maybe it's not a date. Started with a solid from De Novo, placed transfers top and bottom of the page, then masked the photo between the transfers. Once the main image was pretty much in place, I started building the story with the different elements ... clouds, birds, driftwood, compass, string around the driftwood, fish. Created a composite of the image, then started again with a new solid. Masked the composite using De Novo FotoBlendz No.1. Added the title, the bit from Moby Dick (scanned page), then decided that I needed to have more of an underwater look below the image, so added back in the original composite and masked out the top portion. I think that covers it :). Thanks for looking.

stunning! love your treatment, blending, masking and the wonderful blue--> so perfect in every way!
I am a big fan from this style that you always do, so i have not enough words to say how beautiful this is. So congratulations i give you a Standing O #72
Love your page, Adryane. The photo is awesome, love the blues, your blending, the birds, and word art. Congrats on the Standing O! ♥
The color is grabbing me, and that little bit of looming menace, too, just as there should be when navigating Moby Dick. Masterful work here.
