Morning,

I've gone a bit mad today and tried something different. I ran this through Topaz b&w effects to give it a high key look then boosted the blacks to make it a bit more like a pencil sketch.

Any thoughts?

Cheers

Andy

Well done you for trying something different. This makes me think that the Topaz B&W Effects might be worth buying.

You had a good composition to start with but it does look good as a pencil sketch.

Well who's thrown the theory of three into a cocked hat then ? This is superb Andy. I love these converted images, and thank goodness for the software, because I might be able to put a passable photograph together, but I sincerely wish that I could just pick up a pencil and make a passable image. Oh well.....in my next life ! Wink
