Little Girl

Decided that the little girl needed a little a nice dreamy look as she looked very comfortable on the grass.

Highlighted hair
Cast light on the side of her face
Enhanced eye colour
Added some light mist
Added a cooling filter

wizzard7 - A very nice interpretation of a very beautiful picture, although it is slightly disturbing that the girl in the original picture has a black eye.

Wow I can't believe I missed it.

Hard to tell for sure but you might be right about the black eye.

wonderful photo!

0) resize to 900 in width
1) copy background
2) virtualPhotographer, aged photo b&w, some noise
3) decrease opacity (anything between 50 and 85% will do, in attachment is 75% version)
3) copy the layer from step 2
4) imp->chalk sketch->half-finished (brush 25, brightness 60, contrast 50, bg-image), blend-hard light

imp->chalk sketch->half-finished is one of my favorite Impressionist styles. It worked nicely here.

oh, that's for sure... i love especially its effect on recoloured photos, when you put the "image" as background... yet coarse, the results can get pretty impressive

btw, thanks

JC...what a lovely result! I can't thank you enough for your details ..I tried it on two photos (one family, other of friends) and both turned out beautifully. I used Photo Wizz instead to get a sepia tone. The photo of my friends was on the blurry side and not the best but with this make-over it turned out quite differently and successfully.

WC illustration.

GIMP: Used Photocopy filter set to Value on top layer to create 90% of the effect. Some additional saturation/color adjustments. Used Xero's Fuzzifier filter and some smudging for cleanup.

Addendum:

Also used the old version of GIMP (1.2.4) for it's Adaptive contrast filter to give it more of a painted contrast look. Also used Xero's Pastellize filter on a separate layer set to Divide with adjusted opacity to give the overall image that glow effect.
