I took this at the War & Peace event last year - and I'm hoping to go again this week. Thanks for looking and for any comments. I love the new radial filter in LR5 which I've used here.
Special thanks to Jenn for her UA for Running Boy.

You can draw a circle or oval around any part of the image (in this case his head) and apply a range of processes either within the circle or without it. See the video here on how it works. Love it!

Wonderful facial detail Ann - he does tend to blend in with the bg colours though.
Been doing what that radial filter does for years with the oval marquee tool in CaptureNX and PS CS3.Smile

He really looks the part and your portrait is excellent: I meant to click earlier but got distracted before doing so and appending my comment.
These participants really go the extra mile to enhance the authenticity and they make super subjects.
