What a gorgeous picture!

I added a gaussian blur layer, copied several times with different blending modes (overlay, screen and soft light, if I remember correctly.) Then selected Samantha, desaturated the background and added some splatter filter.

Frank, wonderful soft look.

Blacknight, why would you put that sweet little girl in the middle of a forest! The big bad wolf could be prowling! She looks pretty and content though, matching well as if she belongs in the setting.

Ecurbh, that is a wonderful treatment...the soft focus against the starker b/w background really sets off her gentle beauty.

Phil, wow...really great job on that first one! (The second one has colored specks showing here and there for some reason.)

Jim, Deep Paint does a nice job. Does it do it all for you or do you have to add brush strokes etc. also?

This one is just a bright soft focus with darkened background to set her off even more. Made a dupe b/w layer set to hard light, then gaussian blur followed by equalize adjustment. Duped that layer, keeping same mode setting, then lowered opacity so the back wasn't tooooo dark. Placed dupe of original above these and set to color mode. Touched up the hair with dodge tool just a touch to keep it out of the shadows, did some color tweaking, then merged.

The equalize adjustment is useful for some pretty nice effects. I used it yesterday on the flowers, fish, and produce (described there), and now I've found something else I like about it. I just put a post in the forum on Photoshop Filters describing two ways to use it in combination with gaussian blur, along with samples of each.

Phyllis,

With Deep Paint you have to do virtually everything yourself. It is labor intensive. There is, however, a great deal of control. Lots of brushes and textures each of which can be modified to suit your personal taste. It functions either as a PS plug-in or as a stand-alone program. It is PC only...Mac version is yet to be released.

A fully functional preview version (60 days or 40 hours) is available at http://www.righthemisphere.com/products/dpaint/
