Smudge - maybe??

I thought this might make a good one for you smudgers out there, though I'm not limiting posts to that only.
I know this chap and he has kindly given his permission to post here.

OB very nice extraction there on the retouch. But you are risking the wrath of 'SHE' who must not be named if you don't at least try a smudge one day.

Look forward to seeing that one, glasses can be tricky.

I can't tell you who 'SHE' is as I value my skin intact, plus as I say 'SHE' cannot be named

No not shirking, getting ready to go to a sad event tomorrow, I lost my sister at the weekend, and needed a bit of a diversion so visited here.

So sorry for your loss. I haven't yet experienced the loss of my sister, but it would be horrible.

I did use my computer,a lot, to get thru Cancer tho.
