Some people you meet online you just connect with and you have a feeling you would be fast friends if you were neighbors. Arnold Hayes and I only recently "met" via Instagram and we have had an instant connection based on our mutual love of painting, photography and most importantly iPhone art! I'm proud to share his photographic creation as a part of The Whole Story series.

The Whole Story by Arnold Hayes
I opened Superimpose to blend the two images and used the color burn filter to bring out the contrasts. Next, I used Tangled FX (Small Details) for the sparkling effect and reduced it's strength. Then I used a Modern Grunge ripped preset to create the overall look of the piece. Finally I used Snapseed to lower the saturation and sharpen the contrast.
I have been a painter and illustrator for over 20 years. During the daytime I am a Computer Network Engineer for a large technology firm. I live in Arizona and have a wife and two beautiful children. A few months ago I discovered a whole new world of art with my iPhone 4, soon after I purchased the iPad Air and life has never been the same. Everyday I strive to learn and grow, to develop my vision and realize my childhood dream.
