Looking for some gut feelings and honest responses - even if not flattering. Putting this on the critique gallery, even though I don't think it will have any exif data, so it may not be suitable. I really do want that feed back, though! Took the picture in infra red (ir converted digital camera), tried out a pseudo lith effect in Photoshop then imported it into Painter 11 and used several autopainting settings before bringing it back into Photoshop. In the end, although I did use 'auto' in Painter, there was quite a lot of work as nothing in PS was auto at all, and I had to be selective in Painter, too.
Is it cheating? Is it like, a machine made thing, or a person made thing? And, does anyone like it? I think I quite do, but then I just made it and I really should have waited a couple of days
