Changed the image

After some thought, I decided to change the image...

Thanks for the hint :-)

Ali is soooo cute

I love yours Christine, how do you get that effect in painter? Just got painter... inspired by all the beautiful examples on retouchpro. This is my first attempt. My mom, who paints with oils, said you can't mess up, just you just paint over any mistakes... don't think it works that way in multimedia form.

I'm still playing.

Welcome Wizard... You just made it (4 min before the cutoff).

This ends the competition for this one... It will probably be a 2-3 days until Ali's mother is able to review the entries and make a decision.

There are some wonderful interpretations. She will have a difficult time deciding which one she likes best.

Thanks to everyone who participated.

Gallery of Ali pictures

All entries can be seen (easily) here:

http://www.pbase.com/dannyraphael/al...chpro&page=all

Ali's mother is reviewing them now (during her break at work) and I expect she will have her selection made by end of day. She commented, "Wow... This is going to be hard. There are so many really good ones."

With so many good ones from which to choose, it's a nice problem to have.

Stay tuned...

~Danny~
