A quick view of _Helena_'s recent activity.

  • Self Portrait

    Def, scrimmy. I noticed that I've got some edge issues on the strap. But I could've cloned it out, I just didn't want to. It's a 'real' cowboy hat and that strap kept it on in the wind! Considering the state of my hair in that heat, it was a very good thing!

    And @Geoff, I've got a shovel, but I've been shoveling all week. I'm TIRED LOL.

    Thanks fellas!

    This is beautiful, surreal, almost like a painting. And the green is just so welcoming and serene. Lovely, calming image.

    Thanks Charles, I thought the same. It's main issue was motion blur, it was very windy and I didn't have a tripod. Then there were blown highlights etc and I tried to do recovery.. but with all that's wrong with it, it's here for a reminder for me. Winds of change.. Smile

    This is amazing. I sooo wish I could do this to a portrait, or even close to it haha! How great would a coffee table book of portraits like these be? I'd buy it. It just grabs me. Great shot and great post shot processing Smile

    I would really love this image except that her facial expression doesn't match her posture. Her face says reflective which goes with the processing/nude but her body language says she's uncomfortable to me. Love the processing, and the image was nicely shot. Smile

    Could be the cover of a children's book. Love the overlay texture.

    Stopped by to thank you for the great mod you did on my abbey pic, love how you straightened it right up for me, nicely done! But I got lost in your portfolio and almost forgot why I came LOL. Love your insect and butterfly shots, the closeup work you do is really great imo. Keep up the good work!
