T- I think you have won the prize. Thank you. I have copied your steps and shall try again tomorrow.
Rondon-I think the problem with the avatar is that it's animated, sort of. Don't worry about it. Thanks

at the end of the process there is a little confusion... if I click "save changes" it gives an error message... un needed I gather to "save changes"

Hi everybody,

As Danny (thank you!) already said, I'm in the process of moving .... I'll try to login as regularly as possible but it might not always be possible...

My 'puter' is the very first thing I got running .... and where I turn to to get a break from storing, cleaning...etc.

I had a go at your picture and what I did is very similar to what T Paul did:
  • Loosely selected the girl and foreground stone and Ctrl+J pasted the slection onto its own Layer.
  • *Ctrl+click on the newly created Layer to reselect it*, Ctrl+Shift+U to desaturate it, Ctrl+I to invert it and changed the Blending to Soft Light. This, to balance Shadow/Lights.
  • Run the Levels to increase tone and contrast a bit.
Back to the main Image.... Left it pretty much as it was (out of focus and soft) ... The only changes here were:
  • Created a Curves Adjustment Layer and used the White Eyedropper exactly as T Paul did .... just be careful to lower the White Eyedropper value (In the open Curves dialog, double click on the White Eyedropper and in the Color Picker box, change the B value of HSB to 95) ... this takes care of the 'blown out' whites...
  • Created a new empty Layer (Blending=Overlay) and with a very soft, black brush (Opacity 10%) just painted on different areas to make the background come just a bit more alive...
  • Cloned 'good' water on the blown out stream.

Back to the girl:
  • Reselected the girl **, Created a Layer mask, used the USM to slightly sharpen her, and, finally, refined the Mask around her.

amazing

Flora and T paul you are amazing... all that from that low res. little copy... good work...
as for the ankle biter (she has no name yet) i've never really had a pup that was this smart.. and actually try's to talk already.. if thats an asset
hope the move went well.. Flora ... didn't know of it... seems like we lost DJ in a move ... glad to see you are right back at it.

RonDon

Kiska just leaving the dog avatar until your next comment... no problem if you decide not to use it.

FLORA-you're baaaaack! I think you might have become a bit of a 'habit' (a good one, tho).Need that 'fix' every now and then. The pic looks great. I'll work on it today. Thanks. Now you can get back to the FUN, important things like sorting out a move.

kiska

My version of your technique. Photog wanted it 'glamourized'. NOT my thing but I did enhance makeup lightly.

P.S.--- Ms. Flora-- "...very nice....". VERY NICE !!!! Is that the best description of a superb specimen of a coonhound you could come up with??? That OTHER canine wannabe, ankle biter, is a mere mutt! I am insulted.

Signed,

Hannah B.

Mr. rondon-- HOW am I to remain a dignified scent hound with my stately appendage FLAPPING in the breeze????? I suppose if it makes the OLD BROAD happy, I shall look the other way. (and I thought I had successfully sabotaged it. @#$%%$$## BEWARE of smart dawgs)

Just noticed Your tail is wagging but HERS isn't (heh,heh). The O.B. is now curled up in the corner with her lip stuck out. PEOPLE!

Hi!

Kiska, Rondon,

Thank you so much for your kindness!!!!

Kiska,

Great job on the picture .... a bit strong on the make-up, maybe...but that's just my opinion...

Sooooo sorry....... hope you and Hannah, a truly "superb specimen of a coonhound", can forgive me!!!!! She's gorgeous, perfect, absolutely stunning .... but .... "ankle biter" is still just too cute for words....
