I was fiddling about with this one, taken earlier this evening, and although wasn't going dump it, had decided not to upload it.

However being somewhat fickle this evening I've changed my mind - quick - take look before I change it again!

Take one snoot, hat, glass with blue water, fiddle, faff, smooth, burn, tweak and this is what you end up with - or something like this....

Surreal quality to this that is very appealing. Would likely work equally as well in B&W or selective colour.

Thanks Smile Given that I have neither the right shaped face or definitely the right shaped lips I appreciate your approving of this. I'll have to find myself a classic model and try again one day!

Meanwhile here's a quick selective colour version - a bit clumsy but I'm sure you won't mind!

Thanks Peter - indeed I figured the thumbnail would disappear Smile Knowing that I won't be at all surprised when it gets very few views!

I like the colour version Alison, very moody and atmospheric but I'm not fond of colour popping, not just yours but in general and for some reason the site's full of them tonight.
Mono or proper black and white might suit it too.

Exotic, dark elegance.
Don't drink the blue water. Smile

Thanks again all Smile

I'm not a fan of colour popping either Jester - just thought I'd give it a go - I doubt you'll see another from me but it amused me to give it a go following Miptog's suggestion Smile

I'll steer clear of the blue water Eric - especially as I had Shaun the Sheep swimming in it the other day!

Classic and gorgeous will do Roy Smile Thanks for the mod - I did slightly over-cook it didn't I?

Love this. It's the lovely rich red that gets my voteGrin Cant decide which version I prefer though.... equally eye catching.

Thank you Diane Smile I'd forgotten all about this pic - it might pay me go to back through my portfolio sometimes!
