I duped the layer and rotated the top layer. Then painted sharpness back into the eyes with a mask.

Re: Flower Girl

Okay, Eda, I know I am being thick here but your image is the same orientation as ours so what did you do when you rotated the layer? I am sooooooo confused........

Hi Sweetlight,
Here is what I did...

Duped the photo layer.
Took the top layer and rotated to the left 90 degrees and ran the Filter-Stylize-Diffuse Ansiotropic.
Rotated that same layer 90 degrees to the right twice. Applied the same filter again.
Rotated that same layer 90 degrees to the left to bring it back to the center and applied the same filter.
I then smudged lightly ( 15% strength ) with smudge tool all over the skin.
Added a mask to that same top layer and painted with black on the mask to bring back details in the eyes.

That's it. :-) Hope this helps :-)

Re: Flower Girl

Not quite happy with my previous effort; went all pencil on this one.

Re: Flower Girl

Okay so I assume the ansiotropic effect differs as your image rotates, this is the purpose?

PLEASE everyone excuse me I am not normally so dense, in public anyways.

WOW, THAT ACTUALLY IS A VERY, VERY NICE TECHNIQUE. THANKS.

Re: Flower Girl

Here is a quick stab at it although you still seem to have more of a smoother kind of touch. Maybe it takes more smudge than I am doing.

Now I'm confused. The technique I was referring to is Amica's rendition of the Flower Girl. Amica did a very impressive "Fake" smudge. That is the one we're talking about, right? In any event it is a great way to smooth the skin.
