Smile Playtime...

Ok this one is for play,
original to the left and my take on the right, a subtle difference as i wanted to enhance it into a natural light portrait.
Tiny bit of Lucis and gamma increase, took out the bunny with an airbrush and painted in the bg.

Trusty D3
Iso 1600
F4
1/320 secs
FL: 70mm
Lens 24-70mm

Have fun

Re: Playtime...

I had done some preliminary sketching and some sloppy painting and was playing with gradients and going through the different modes to see the effects and all of a sudden this gentleman's Dark Side jumped out!

Re: Playtime...

Beautiful shot....I tried a smudge without losing too much of this gents personality. Not sure if I had some success, for you to judge :-)

Thanks for the play

Re: Playtime...



Great shot Gary I went down the black and white route (first)
but i forgot to take the bunny out and have spent the last hour trying too and did not like anything i have done so i am posting bunny and all


phew feel better just noticed a couple of other bunny's

will try something else next without the bunny

nice one again Steve like the texture
Ol Baldy the dark certainly has come out in that one
Amica you done great i loosely "tried" a smudge but was loosing too much detail

Re: Playtime...

Thank you Palms and Peter.

Steve C. dito what Palms said, nice texture
OB, not sure about this one...it's dark okay :-)
Palms, bunnies or not, great contrasty product.
Peter, lovely painterly look (and a good way to get rid of unwanted bunnies, too) :-)

Re: Playtime...

I used Palms' sketch, the Bas Relief filter and played with blending modes for this one.

Wow!
what a fantastic mixture of talent you guys have...
Palm's sorry to here about the bunny thing, but it's really quite funny...if it's any consolation i did the same thing lol - nice b/w result..
Olbaldy, i think you turned him into Freddy Krueger, excellent!
Amica, lovely rich warm colours, great texture on the bg, although he looks a bit startled, may be it's the eyes..
Peter i do like your version, you have managed to alter his expression and the eyes do tell a story, brilliant how it worked out..
Gerry, very different again and Steve, i have no idea how you did that, but very nice indeed.
Gary...

Thank you sir! Yea, I thought Freddy K also... except maybe outside the 'Playboy' club (Bunny)

Had to have another go, just to clean it up some and not look soooo menacing and dark..
