The milk maid

By Bogwoppett
i hope you don't mind me re-visiting my archives.

I like to tinker, and re-look at older images, and re-process them using the skills I have developed in the meantime.
My editing has evolved, and I am using different software to when I first took this image. I'm happier with this new version, and I decided to share it with you.

the concept was to invoke a peasant milking maid from around three centuries ago. In my head was a country farm in Dorset (Wessex) with a sun-kissed girl living and working on the farm. Very much a romanticised version, in the style of a Thomas Hardy novel.

versions are loaded.

No, I do not mind you revisiting and reworking your archives. It is a good use of your newer skills.
In my mind though, 3 centuries ago, the standard farm workers would not be as much tanned in sooo many places. Have you thought of making them black abd white?
