here's my attempts at this one. for the first one, first I duplicated the layer then I tried out a couple texture filters, then adjusted curves on the different layers, then flattened the image and did a final curves adjustment.

Second try: this one was working from where i finished with the last one (I was going for an antique look on this one). I duped the layer, applied my new favorite filter (Old Photo) which turns the photo to a sepia tone. then i used the eraser at about 20% opacity and a couple different brushes to get back some of the color on the rose.

David.....How unusual, my vote is for the first one. It would make a wonderful background, with a little more fade.

Not really sure, can't remember exactly! I normally colour correct infdividual channels rather than "master" in Photoshop. Read some good colour correction techniques. Being new here, I'm not sure what has already been mentioned, I might be going over old gound. There is some quite good stuff here,

Also I like David Rowley's stuff, simple but good tutorials. (I even bought one of his cd's!). This half tone effect sometimes works well. Sometimes it's too much, you'll have to fade it.

Lot to learn.

Chuck, I don't think so! You're being modest! As I said, I only started this year, but it is coming, albeit very slowly. Photoshop is such huge programme to learn. The basics are not too difficult but I think you could on learning it forever. Last year I had to take an early retirement due to ill health and at that time I couldn't even spell "computer". Never really used one in my life. So it's been a very steep uphill learning curve, apart from digital cameras and Photoshop I've also had to try and master cooking, house work etc.

Thanks Phyllis and Goldcoin!
Frank - those are some interesting sites, especially the first one, that's a good color correction tut on there.
