Sightless and Unfeeling

Mary Crawley, a good friend of mine, took a look at an image of mine and suggested the title as being "Sightless and Unfeeling". It was in reference to the false "eyes" on the wings of the butterfly and the clock hands. I loved the title so much that I altered the image to fit the name.

The orginal starting point was much lighter. I wanted the image to be more forboding and set off the tone suggested in the title, so I cropped the image closer and darkened the composition. I also added texture and shadows  while adjusting the colour balance. I am pleased with the above image results and loved the fun of having the title come before the image!
