Well done.

Thanks again everyone - I'm still smiling Smile

I'm actually managing to refine my technique with this filter as it does tend to produce some unwanted sharp edges. I think I've finally come up with a method that doesn't necessarily speed up the process but does make it a bit easier. I'm sure you all really wanted to know that Smile

Thank you again everyone - a what a nice week this is turning out to be Smile

I'm just trying to decide whether to upload another wooden man shot tonight (the thumbnail will look awful) or a feather - I shall ponder a little longer Smile

Thanks Cheryl Smile

I had just enough of that wrapping paper to stick one length on a sheet of A3 grey board to provide a totally smooth background another length which I attach with clothes-pegs to provide a more undulating effect. Either way, the background is now big enough to do away with that highlight! Now the challenge is to keep the paper clean and tidy - I'm going to have to sort out a case of some sort I think.

Hi Peter - thanks for stopping by! It is indeed very satisfying to earn an EC - trouble is once you have one you want another and I've yet to impress Pete sufficiently again Smile

I'm happy with what I'm managing to produce though (usually) so shall settle for that!

Hi Gregor - thank you for taking a look! I think I should dig out this hand again sometime and see what else can be done with it - actually I've two hands so maybe I'll try both together.
