keiser
I like the second one best, nice and sharp, though maybe a little over sharp.
The high key one, looked better when I pasted it into PS and darkened it with levels, not bad at all then.

Sometimes the UGLIEST curve can produce a really cool result.....what do you think?

Re: Another Nice Gal

There is no such thing as ugly, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or so I'm led to believe.
Its getting smoother and lighter.
Your obviously going through a purple phase. Don't get to a black one, everything disappears, black on black not very visible.
Purple - it seems to work though.
I'm going through a grey phase myself, especially my hair.

Peter
