Re: Creative Interpretations - Ascet

Thanks. A little convoluted to explain, but I'll try. I created a fill layer with a slightly darker color then the brightest one. I create a mask for that layer using the image itself with a copy of original underneath the now masked fill layer. I then duplcate the original and run ACE on the new center layer and adjust opacity to taste. I flatten, desaturate, and stretch the contrast.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Ascet

all unique versions. My preference on this is a warmer tone and/or darker toned, as most of you confirmed.
OB, you have nicely tickled out details
Sylvia, it's light and soft, looks good
Lyle, I really like that
Chris, dark and soft, lovely
