Nice find and wonderful interpretations. I am too old for MTV so please don't expect these short replies :-) I thought I might try a smudge...

Amica999 - your attemt is really nice! Especially because you neutralize ambient light. try using brush in color mode neutralize it even more. use eye dropper to sample warm color, than just paint over cool areas.

I think you answered your own question, it's ambient light that was in the picture already. I didn't mind the look of it so left it there.


Dk very sharp especially around the edges where you have masked the BG.

OB you been playing with Plastic wrap again???

Amica that's impressive.

Thank you Stopa, as you may realize this is the photo based art section and I don't really aim at realism. I actually like the ambient lights as it adds an interesting touch to the pic. Nevertheless thank you for your tipps of toning them down, if I wanted to.

Peter, thank you very much. I actually like the idea to impress YOU this time, instead always the other way around :-)
