this is a montage i did in december as a birthday card for a friend who loves classical music.
i did two versions: one in color and one in bw. i decided to use the layer mask technique to combine them. i turned the bw image into a duotone and then faded with the layer mask. i rather like it.
the background is the lady chapel at ely cathedral. composers are clockwise from upper left: bach, beethoven, barber, brahms and handel.
