Old Woman

This weekend was the annual Fiddler's Festival and Competition. It brings pickers and grinners from all over the south. There is some wonderful music and lots of foot stompin' tunes to be heard as these musicians jam with each other. It is always a place for pictures. This lady came from down out of the hills to listen to the south's unique brand of music. She graciously gave permission to use her image.

Enjoy.

Janet

Re: Old Woman

Thanks for this wonderful picture, Janet!
I had a go at smudging again... I purposefully avoid the kind of baby-doll smudging that I see on forums. It's just not my style...

Sylvia, your absolutely right. In this case baby doll look is not the way to go

Re: Old Woman

Wow, Janet - there's some history in that face, eh? Thanks to you and to her for letting us artify her.

I did some HDR-like tweaking with Redynamix in CS2, then Paintered her.

Yes I agree with that Lonnie. I have done 2 versions, one is layer blends and lighting effects, the other is another play with my new toy, impressionist. Thanks again Janet for another great image.

Just a straight processing of light and color.
