thought I'd check in and see what's happening. Good to see some of the "old" faces are still contributing! Got a new laptop with Vista Home Premium, CS3 and and Intuos 3 4x5 tablet so have had lots of stuff to learn. So far, all is going well and I like CS3 a lot -- upgraded from CS so several new goodies are wonderful - smart sharpen being one. Here's one I played with a bit and another sort of cut-out style. Hope you like and thanks for looking. Haven't seen too many retouches posted recently.
