Patricia,

Very nice pictures. I love how casual they appear in the garden.
Interesting effect with Nick filter.

Although this tutorial is well written and the instructions are clear, it is/was difficult for me to follow and achieve the same results the author intended. I played with it for a long time before I finally got something I could post.

Thanks Patricia for the statues. They were perfect to try out this technique.

Hi Patriciakay.

No smudging involved. Used Buzz on one of the layers and it will sometimes give a smudged look.

I have one more statue that I like and will finish it today.

And thanks.

Steve

This was a fun project, thanks for the great photo!

1. Copied the background and made a mask of the statue.
2. Ran a "Distort->Lens Distortion on the background and also added some black to the building in the background (Selective colors->whites) and white areas around the body of the statue. I just found this area distracting and wanted to reduce its impact.
3. There appeard to be some red (about the waistline in the statue and blue cast around the bottom at the base) I removed both of these tinges with hue and sat adjustment layer
4. Set a goldish color AJ above the statue to give it an weathered look.
5. Curves to pop the statue and darken the background.
