Lots of work in the digital darkroom. Used Topaz Remask, inserted new background, added textured layers, reworked and enhanced in Photoshop, and finished with Topaz Impressions to give a painterly feel.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed.
