I love sales - especially sales in already el cheapo shops Smile

I found this slightly extravagant necklace today - all of 2 so of course I had to buy it and try it out.

However I'd be interested, if anyone would like to comment, how the right hand side of the image looks. When I view it in Paint Shop Pro (my preferred software) it looks abysmal, all patchy. However in Picasa and Elements it looks fine.

I also wonder if I should chop my ear off Smile

Looks OK Alison, tho it could do with a little more burning in on RHS I don't think you need to see the outline on that side.

Thanks everyone Smile These were a real pain to do as my poor Phottix remote seems to be on its way out Sad It'll only trigger the camera from about a foot or so away which is a fat lot of use! I did put new batteries in it but that doesn't seem to have helped.

Anyway thank you for the mod too POD - I do like seeing what folks can do with my pics. As for your suggestion Nick - I'll upload another version!

Yes #3 is much better for me, it adds more mystery to the image, pretty classic could be used in a perfume Ad.

Try the Yongnuo remotes on eBay they do both wireless and corded.

Good Smile

I'll take a look at the remotes you suggest - it would be handy to have a spare!

I like the colour version Alison but V3 gets my vote,it does look better with a little more darkness around that RHS.

I think no1 is about spot on on my screen ........ just the merest hint of body shape.
I really can't make up my mind if you should do a Van Gough or not though

RHS of #1 looks fine to me, viewing in Firefox. I saved a copy and looked in PSP and it looked fine there, too, even when I did a craaaaaaazy curves adjustment so your whole back was bright enough to see clearly.

Actually, doing that suggested another take on this: same pose, with gloved hands on the shoulders, cropped just above the hands, exposed so the detail in the gloves is clearly visible.

Thanks for checking - it must just be some oddity with Paint Shop Pro. I can live with that - I'll just double check elsewhere if I'm in doubt.

I'll try again sometime and follow your suggestions. I was going to do some SPs today but decided that I was nice and cosy in my layers of clothes and it was too chilly to strip off. Exposure tends to be a bit hit and miss with these but I'll see what I can do next time.

First thing however is to order a new remote - mine is driving me totally bonkers at the moment.
