    Nice work on that shot. Does your wife know that you posted a shot of her with no make-up on? Mine would be coming at me with a blunt instrument meaning to do harm if I did that :biggrin:
     
  3. LOL, Yes she knows.

    I've been working on improving the look of skin and as usual she is my test subject.

    There is a post describing the technique HERE

    The seventh post down has instructions and an action download.

  4. Very nice job on this image of your lovely wife Greg!
    I like her natural look a lot. My wife very rarely wears make up also when around the house, often just a touch of eye liner.
    Your wife should be very pleased with this portrait.

    I have been using the Woody treatment for skin and have had good results with that:

    My wife has never been keen for me to take pictures of here, but when she saw the Woody treatment she was posing all the time :smile:
     
  6. Very good (both examples), not overdone like some do (I hate plastic skin!)

    Does it work on middle aged men (48) in real life? :rolleyes: :biggrin:
     
  7. Grey, VERY well done, not over the top, not plastic, great PP.

    Kevin, who says 48 is middle aged!!!????? :eek:
     
  8. It was my Birthday last Sunday and my wife kept telling people that I'm 'nearly 50' :rolleyes: , just makes you feel so much better... :frown:
