I might have to quit. How can I beat such a beautifully well done rendering. Really looking forward to seeing more of your stuff Joeven.

Thanks everyone for the nice welcome. I used an underwater background that I made for both pics. Different results.

Welcome aboard.

Came to this website after reading Katrin Eismann's 3rd restoration book. I've been reading the tutorials and checking out the site for a month. Learned a lot! You might not be able to get rid of me now. Viva La Retouch Pro!

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #149 – Great Blue He

Nothing too artistic here... just tried to make this a bit less harsh. I used the following 6 filters:
1. Pog's blurrinator
2. Nik/skylight
3. Rosenman/diffuse glow
4. Redfield/bas relief
5. Lighting effects/omni
6. Xero/caravaggio

Also adjusted the colors a bit.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #149 – Great Blue He

First timer here. Went a little nutzoid and envisioned a Hawkwind album cover; went from there. Just doodling and tweaking layers, playing with filters and effects. I couldn't retrace my steps if I tried...
