Now that is a compliment, Gary. Thanks.
You're welcome, I love your entry.

Swampy, just seen yours, great concept. Not too sure about dark line around jacket, makes it look like a bad extraction, I can understand the necessity to isolate it from the white BG, but think it lets down a little an otherwise excellent entry.

I understand, Gary. The lady with the smoking gun was an Illustrator file and I originally had it as all red, but that lacked something so I outlined portions of it in black. Kind of hard to selectivly stroke only portions of a vector element.

Appreciate the comments though. :-)

After an extrememly long day and even longer commute home I was thrilled to read the latest posts to this thread!

I had so hoped that the discussion thread would be used to offer suggestions to each other, so that entries could be improved throughout the month.

KUDOS, and keep up the great work!!

Try creating two versions of your illustrator file layer, one that is all red and one that is red with the black stroke. Place the red & black stroke layer above the solid red layer. Now add a layer mask to the top layer (red & black file) and selectively paint out the areas using the mask that you just want to be red.

A question for Doug really. Having read your addition to the site FAQ's about nekkidness. would you like me to remove my contest post.
I know she's not unclothed but if it is going to cause any fuss, no prob I will remove it.

Can't speak for Doug of course, but from my point of view your picture contains nothing that would offend anyone (I presume we've all overcome the prudity of the Victorian age when seeing a woman's ankle was a thing of note).

Any comments made were surely meant in a spirit of fun and friendly nobble.

I for one would be greatly suprised (and disappointed) if you were asked to even alter your entry in any way.
