Re: Take your pick

Craig, I'd like to see your version cropped closer to the bird's beak. Although the shot of the parrot is good, the fact that its tail was cut off and there is so much "blank" canvas to the left screams "bad shot, bad shot". I think in this case, cropping out the left side would give a "tight shot" feel such that you don't "mind" the missing tail. Am I making any sense?

Re: Take your pick

dee dee,

i cant give you a crop of the posted pic. i cropped half way through. so, most all the smudging and some of the other was done after the crop. but, here's the point just before i cropped.

Okay, Craig. I still like the painting effect you achieved.

When you marry Tone mapping (Qtpfsgui)...

...with ACE, you get this (well, again, some additional tweaks required as well).

Re: Take your pick

Thanks Craig. I didn't know if I should take it all the way to an illustration, or enhance it to the photo side, so I left it be. Schizo I am. lol
