Wonderful results people. I'm a sucker for babies and this one is no exception. Thumbs up to all of you.

Here is my contribution. If it turns out too yellow on your monitors, please let me know. I added quite a bit of yellow to the final and my monitor is calibrated to the printer so what I get is often different that what ya'll get. Thanks

Janet

Since you asked ...
Janet, the baby's skin shows pinkish/magenta for the most part, but there is a section on the left side (facing) that shows 100% yellow when I look at it in Photoshop. (varies but 18/76/100/9 [CMYK] is typical from what the eyedropper picks up). The shaded area on his chin and on the right side are also high in yellow, but not 100%, and don't LOOK yellow. The brightly lit areas of his face (his "mask", I believe is the term, is mostly majenta according to the numbers. It's an attractive look to my eye, and I would expect a bit of yellow reflection from the yellowish blanket to show up on his face next to the blanky. (quite honestly, if you hadn't brought it up, I'd never have noticed -- I had to bring the image up in PShop to "see" the yellow.)

Ran Neat Image on this one first. Then One Step Photo Fix in PSP9 followed by Edge Preserving Smooth and Brushstrokes. Smudged the sharp edges left by brushstrokes, added a texture layer, and framed in PS7.

Nice Catia. I'm glad you ran Neat Image. It is something I should have done when I realized how much grain the face had in it to begin with. Nice job!

Thanks CJ for the comments. I was trying for a yellowish/magenta glow to warm the picture up a bit but couldn't tell if I'd accomplished it without feedback from another eye (not just numbers).

Nice versions all. I'm curious what Janet did to get the "imported from painter" base layer in hers. Please share.

Mine is basically a repeat of my 2nd "Paula in BW" version. But I left out the cutout layer, added a hint of color, and added a texture layer.

Hi Legacy Art,

I created several Selections and placed them on seperate Layers. Using Layer styles I then created a drop shadow for each and used a 1 pixel stroke to help seperate them from the background.

I created another empty Layer and placed a number of question marks on it.

Regards

Con Looymans
