Nick 2

By CathyT  
Cropped and hopefully addressed the dark corner from yesterdays photo.(see V2)

Yesterday I read on the forums if it was possible to turn a really awful duff photo into something using textured backgrounds.

This is my attempt.

This is my friend Nick...looking in my bathroom mirror...I left the lights down the side in to show the catchlights. used three different textured backgrounds and my usual method of processing portraits. (Dragan Style...sort of)

The Tatts are all his....he's covered in them.

I didn't think it was that much of an issue before but this has corrected it well, nice job.

I clicked this yesterday 'cos I thought it was a well conceived idea which you put together extremely well, and I still think so now.
