Smile Please

It was the smile that got me with this one.
I've done two versions, I'm not sure which I like best so post em both I thought.

Re: Smile Please

Peter - you're killing me with all these great portraits! We might have to eat out on Thanksgiving as far behind as I am with preparations.
Here's a version using oil pastels in Painter. I love the lines in photo - long and elegant.

Re: Smile Please

What was that you said Margaret - you want me to post MORE pics- I'll have to go on a web hunt for you.

Thanks for taking the plunge Steve it was worth the wait.

Palms I liked your but I had to load it into PS to really see it properly, the white background here just bleached it out (eh you know it sort of blended in)

HroadhogD1 I value all opinions thanks.

Re: Smile Please

peter,

just make sure the photos you're posting are not copyright protected. general image searches often dont say. so, make sure you have the permissions to post. i like your selections too, but i know all too well how easy it is to post any old thing without permissions. it might also be a good idea to give credit to the photographer or web site even if you have the permissions and can post them.

Re: Smile Please

All good points Craig I should have mentioned the site.
Luckily they have all come from the same source http://gallery.use.net.ru/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?misc
This site has already been used many time here at RP by Danny & co.
I found the site from a link given here by ????? (my memory is going- again)

Re: Smile Please

You have done a beautiful job with that image Peter, the artistic effect/s you have used are so well suited to it May I ask what your workflow was with these? As for her smile, the first thing I noticed, that may be what is making her smile look a little odd, is the skewed/crooked appearance of her teeth... a little retouching there may make the difference.
