Re: Creative portraits: Woman in green

Great photo, Dron. I'll play with it some more later, but for now ...

I was aiming for a pastel effect after the recent competition. Of the 2, I prefer the first one, but I'll need to work on the background. The pastel effect on the second one looksa bit too harsh.

Wow; some excellent interpretations that I no where near have the ability to do being a filter guy. Been on sort of a mosaic binge of late so why not. Click link below for complete rendition.

Re: Creative portraits: Woman in green

It's funny how things occur to you. I was doseing in front of the telly and had a brain wave about how to achieve a convinciing palette knife effect.

It's a work in progress, but I think I'm getting there ...
