Here I unleash a cloud of “Clown Gas” as I drop ink into an aquarium, sans fish.

Opened the two photos in Photoshop as layers, masked out half of the top layer…

Then masked the aquarium out…
I guess I could have made a second shot completely different by masking out the red side instead.

 

Final Thoughts

I used two shots one second apart so it would look less symmetrical, but I probably should have used two photos that were 3 or 4 seconds apart so it would look less like a mirror image.
