Not sure about this, trying a soft pastel look. The image was taken against a black background then I converted the black to pastel shades in Raw and thats it. I will put a sharpened version as a version.

Thanks for all your support

Works very well in my opinion, Ann: V 2is perhaps a touch oversharpened and of V 1 and 3, it's V 3 with the slight more contrast with the b/g tone that does it foe me.
Beautiful work.
Ronnie.
