Yes Titi, I agree, funny you can look at something and until it is pointed out it doesn't hit you...wish I had seen that before...never mind.

I like this Colleen, the aged effect is wonderful and she's a wonderful young model. I knew this was yours immediately from the thumbnail.I agree about the light at the top, but I think I'd be tempted to clone it out so as to leave the space at the top.

Thanks too, I like ther to be some room around the image...well in this case.

Thank you Titi, I am very greatful of your appreciation on my PF.

I am so angry with myself that I didn't get rid of the light in the background...feel like pulling off now and redoing it.

Very nice portrait - may have cropped out the light through the trees above ?

The faded, almost hand-tinted effect, works charmingly with this subject. OK the highlights could be taken out to avoid distraction - but it's a cracking image nonetheless. Well done. Bruce.

You are developing a style that is uniquely yours. Knew that this was your shot, before I even opened it. You probably have enough on this theme to display. Michael

Lovely treatment. Shame about the distracting highlights, but I like the way the lines of the road in the background draw attention to the subject. Click.

7 Feb 2006 10:39AM
click number 40. I like the toning you have given the image. although filters have been done, the main thing is you started out with a very good image. Good pose, good lighting, alot of very good elements to work with to create a stunning image. Yes, you are creating a nice style in the "fairytale" type/"nostalgic" imagery look. I like this style alot and wish I knew enough about photoshopto be able to create such myself. Have taken a look at a few of your other images. well done.

Well done on the HC.
It's a beautiful portrait, and whatever filters you chose to use, the effect is wonderful. I agree with all the other comments about cloning out the distraction at the top, it would improve your picture by loads, and it's already very good.
