Happy Lunar New Year 2008
2008 Year of the Rat
For this composition I combined the image of a rat with a view of the forbidden city from across a waterway. I love making the animals giant-size, so the little guy is clambering over the building. The original composition was "portrait" format showing reflections of the rat in the water, but it never worked well on the default "landscape" format of computer monitors, so I reworked it to this view. A Photoshop composition for Lunar New Year 2008. Happy Year of the Rat!
