Beautiful smudge Ray!! The red/green combination always makes for a vivid contrast and helps this image really pop!! gg!!:biggrin:
Oh, and the textured background works very well too!

OK. I guess I am the only one here who doesn't know what smudging is. Ray, can you explain what you did and how you achieved this wonderful result? It is stunning, but I have never heard this term and really don't have any idea how you achieved this effect.

Thanks very much.

The left too bar. The veritcal one..It is where the sharpen, blur and smudge tool
Choose the smudge brush.
At the top the little drop down by the smudge tool
Chose a brush
try different brushes , different modes and different strengths.
Just choose a pic nd try to get the feel of the different settings. I will look for the tutorials.
