Took an unusable picture and created the ethereal image inspired by the subject.
Original photo was badly exposed. Input image into Lightroom and created two copies with exposure changed by +1 or -1. Exported these images along with the original to Photomatrix to create a single blended flat exposure. Then used Photoshop to create 5 layer masks for the different elements of the picture. Edited each layer in PS and then combined them all for a final edit.
