Re: Portrait and Sea Shell

Thanks for posting, OlBaldy. Nice work on your renditions.

I used DAP and several layers of the Impressionist filter.

Re: Portrait and Sea Shell

Definitely a capture worth experimenting with OB; too bad I don't remember exactly what I did (or in your case, you might say thank God). lol

Re: Portrait and Sea Shell

This poor guy got the royal treatment which started with a collage of both images, Topaz sketch blended and followed by Topaz Bl&W. The funny stripes I put in for...balance? Not sure. I thought he looked sort of Hemmingway-ish.

Wow Veronica, I hadn't thought of doing a Composite... What a beautiful rendition!

Your photo-montage certainly does give the gent a 'Hemmingway-ish' look doesn't it and the stripes are a nice accent.. ! Nice touch and very artistic
