A little different

  1. Another rainy, cloudy day and got to playing around with this image of my Himalayan cat. The original was blah but I started to play - changed the background, played with a brush around the edges, changed the mode a time or two and finished up with a lighting effect called TMSoCool2 from Trimoon's collection. Reduced the opacity to my liking and finished with a little PWLII. This is definitely one of those times where specific instructions would be useless because of the subject matter -- I can't think of what else I would try this on and get anywhere near the same effect. Anyway, from a very everyday shot on the kitchen counter (where he shouldn't have been) to the end result was an interesting journey! Hope TOLady sees this - she has a Himmie too! :smile:
  2. Wow Diane, that is some serious post processing - looks like you had fun with it. Very impressive!
  3. Thanks Frits - rainy day solution! Are you getting the snow that Ottawa is??

    Thank you Diane,
    Keith R made the avatar for me.

    Thanks again Keith.
  10. Nice Diane..:smile: he sure has a fierce stare :wink:
  11. Thanks Mike - he puts on the "tough look" when he's in someplace he shouldn't be! :rolleyes:
  12. Hi Diane, that look certainly is familiar!! *LOL* That fact is say "Whaaaat, I wasn't doing anything!" and I know it so well. I like the treatment you've given the picture.... They certainly have very distinct personalities, don't they!!???
  13. Glad you saw this Sandi - this particular occasion was a "don't you dare make me move" look.:wink:
