This is my interpretation of the theme 'windows', the Three Muses' challenge for this week .

I used two photos that I took on holiday in Yorkshire - one of an old building we visited and the other a window in a castle. I applied the picture of the window over the second image. Having previously erased the backgrounds from the pictures of the two women, I scaled them to the appropriate sizes, to make it seeem that the one woman was looking out of the window and the other coming towards it. Finally, I changed all the colours and manipulated the image to give the feel of a poster.

Hope you like it!

This is very beautiful! Love the colors. It's like a picture from a novel. I'm curious about the story.
