Re: A nice pose

lkroll - I was thinking of you when I put the link there, glad you used it, it looks good.

Craig - nice idea to crop, is that one of your filter forge ones. BTW I have'nt changed my name to Danny yet

Admirer - Well sort of works for me I like smooth.

It's the only way to beat you to the punch- post em myself.
Fantastic effort there as well, I just cannot get the hang of Smudging (envy)

Gilbert Love the first one - again I like smooth.

Swampy I knew you would not let me down thats very nice.

Palms - Speak to me

Steve - a good mixture there nice detail to the hair.

Well done all, it just shows me a need more practice at this stuff.

Dont worry Peter i will talk to you (poor you )

Have you watched Lisa's video on smudging ? if not take a look there is a link working here thread #46

http://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/sho...t=84461&page=5

it takes a little while to load but worth it ( not for dial up ) I cant find a working link for the brush's but thats not really a worry it is very rare i use them mainly i use linda's brushes and sarsa's brushes but each to there own ! ! ( should you want them pm me your email addy and i will send them )
then practice practice practice but be selective in your photo's less detail is best
