I think, Cathy, the way you colored your floozy, could still pass for a bust. I saw that coloring in one bust that I saw. You're safe.

Thanks Aceman, Cathy and Swampy. I think I found evidence of the actual bust base and pedestal top in the original and have adjusted my pic to fit. The result looks a little less tippy now.

great work Doug Thanks!

Well I have tweaked this till I am cross eyed!

I used the selection tool selecting the larger areas copy and paste to a new layer - started with using the Chanel mixer to get the color then swithed to selecting a color and using Hue and Sat clicking the colorize box.
Then created layer to Blend mode to Color, and painted in additional color to the bottom layer. Some areas I just created a new layer blend mode to color and painted in the area. Created new layers blend mode soft light used black and white to add a bit more depth.

I worked with two monitors - one my lighter the other much darker to try and balance the color.

Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

Swampy

you might want to check your entry - your edit seems to have made it very dark.

Peter

Actually, Peter, I went for a dark look. I really wanted to bring out the bride and did a two curves adjustmenst. One to darkent the entire image and another to lighten it again to bring up the whites, then added a mask to the lighter curves and painted in the bride's gown, veil etc. to emphasize the "purity".

I know, it's artsy and not "true" to the original image's luminance, but I didn't see anything in the rules about that kind of change.
