This is my first experiment with displacement maps, I don't know if this was the best image to try the technique with but I did.
I would be really grateful for comments help and advice on this as its something that i would like to try and master.
please feel free to use the mods to show examples.

Great shot Mo top marks..
Excellent work, Mo!
Very different Mo, not seen this before, he's still a very handsome chap, for me I prefer the original
Nice work Mo, maybe not the best image to try it on, but hey keep trying mate. All the best.
Gets a click from me.
Tried using a displacement map a while back and it was no easy business.
Thanks guys, Malcolm I prefer the original too, LOL
Bill you're probably right, but weather was bad so I had a little play, i have found another image which I may upload tomorrow.
Thanks Michael, yep I was cross eyed for a while playing with the layers, LOL
very effective Mo!
Lovely portrait Mo, like the effect but maybe not on this shot
Well I wouldn't no were to start Mo so to me it's superb and would love to be able to do this.
This is just fabulous! Great work
Hi Mo, dispacement maps can be great fun but you really have to decide if the end result will look the better for it or not. On this occassion I feel the boys photo is fine without it. I try to keep the use of them to a very graphic image usually grungy as this works best. Nude studies also work well Mo and perhaps would have been a better choise for the wood pattern, can see it working over all the female contours, in fact would also work well on a male torso, perhaps a well build bodybuilder type. All that said my hat goes of to your efforts in what can be a difficult area of manipulation.
Take care victor
Hi Mo,Your son looks excellent as always,your own little pinnochio the wooden boy in reverse,brilliant grain,detail,eye contact,colour/tone,lighting and exposure.I know nothing about this Mo,so sorry i can't help.Take care.Ann
thankyou for your kind comments,much appreciated.
Fantastic - thought it was a shadow effect from a window blind...
super image Mo, i thought displacement was for hips lol.
again, a great image.
It is a great shot Mo, but with a subject as handsome as this I would have posted it without the wooden effect. Still looks good and you really did catch his eyes. Well done....
excellent work Mo
It's an interesting effect. At first I also thought it was blinds, but then noticed the wood effect. I agree it's not the best subject for this effect, but would love to see more! Nice work even though it wasn't the right subject!
Mo never seen this done and it looks to be a great effect! Thought it was blinds at first, fooled me!
An honour to be number 30. Great work.
Thanks again guys, I agree about it being the wrong image to try it on.
Victor I have a few nude model shots I may try it on. cheers mate
Thanks for the mods Ann, appreciate you taking the time to do them, nice work
have not seen this before,great effect
superb work as always, very well done indeed.
youve been attacking photoshop i see
well done love the effect
Good experimental work, Mo.
Have a nice day.
Nice experiment Mo but I too feel it was posssibly the wrong subject,clever manipulation & I think Victor has a good idea with the use of a nude,particularly a male as the effects give a harder look,possibly too harsh for a female torso.
Nice control on the layers thing though.
love the effect
WOW! well this is just incredible - note to self, 'MUST try this'.
A very strong image.
Interesting word striking image,,,Judith
This is a very brave attempt at some thing different and I for one feel that it has paid off.
In fact it proves that the little lad is a chip off the old block.
hi mo a very interesting effect works well. ian
Nice work Mo, great effect.
Nice piece of work, Mo.
Nicely done, Mo!
Interesting, like it.
Nice work Mo , I don't know how it's done ,but I've seen it used on nude images in the past .
well manipulated, but to be honest I'm not quite sure I like it. Original is much better.
Good work Mo.
Hey Mo, this works really well. Nice edit! It has that cool factor to it. I like it!
He's a beautiful boy and I would prefer him straight . You have done a grand job , I think it might look good on nudes or perhaps a car ?? Not seen this done before . xx
This is just excellent!
Hello Mo, this is excellent, at first I thought should the eyelashes be removed and the teeth tones to make it look more like the real thing then I thought no it would spoil the portrait. Very impressive.
Very Cool effect, Mo!
I'll bet the original is gorgeous, what a great look!
A great effect Mo
excellent attempt with a successsful result - I think I prefer the image as was.
A fascinating shot,Mo!Well done
really like this one mo great effect
I tend to uses displacement map to create effects like gold in text but i have never used it to impose a image onto a image.
nice work good idea.
spot on IAJACKS
PS what software are you using to make the image?
Thanks for the comments guys, I have conceded this was proobably the wrong image to try this with.
Ian (iajacks) just using CS2, using the distort/displace filter to do the work
So well done Mo. Love this. Always find displacement maps difficult to do, very effective though. Paul
beautiful piece. love the emotion captured. xx
Well done on mastering the displacement maps.
Very nice work.. See someone's overtaken me on the manipulation work too now!!.. That's all I have.. Back off buddy!!... ;o)
