I'll have to take your word for that, Peter. I kept thinking Brooke Shields as I was doing it.

Re: Long & Curly

In keeping with the moody feel, here is mine.

Janet

And looking at it after it is posted, I can see that the compression took a lot out of the detail. No those are not splotches. They are cracks and readily evident on the full res version. Go figure.

edit: Even after adding the closeup, it still lacks the original. At least one can see I tried.

Re: Long & Curly

thanks, palms, peter that was an exercise that just kept going and going until i hit on that dark bit. i was about 15 layers in before it showed up and it took almost another 15 to refine it. but i like it too and may do more along those lines.

yup, i can see rita hayworth and brooke shields there. and i like that old style portrait look. nicely done, lonk.

janet, the lament of RP'ers, 'only 100k'. *sigh*. you could post it in the gallery and get 200k. or maybe post it on image shack or one of those. i'd love to see the full sized version.

Re: Long & Curly

Cool stuff folks and thanks for the challenge Peter. Thought a bold smudge would look cool, so that's what I did. Attached is an extremely low quality version. Click on the thumbnail to see the high quality version.

Have some pity for me and my mouse Peter. lol

Hope to do better with a real smudging too. Like I said in another post, I need the practice.

PS: Now you all know why I like filters. lol
