    My attempt at a high-key PP. Do we like? Don't worry I'm thick skinned, so let it rip. Thanks for looking. :smile:

  2. I like it Fred but it has a red cast to it. If that was intended that is fine but if not you might try running this through a B&W conversion.

    I used the Fred Miranda tool set to "Light Sepia", so the cast was intended, but you've made a very good point. I should have gone with the "Heavy Sepia" or not used it at all. As is the viewer could think it's an intentional color cast. Thanks for your input Gordon. :smile:

    looks good

    Looks good to me, looking straight at the screen I see light sepia, looking at an angle I see some red.

    I like the image though, especially the high key effect where you blow out some of the tones. Briliant eyes here!

  8. I like the B&W version much better.
  9. The B&W version looks much better to me Fred. Normally sepia would not be used on a hi-key image.

    Really like the B & W version Fred. I must get around to trying some high key PP myself.
  12. Fred......... the B/W kills the other image............ cool work!

    A blue cast could work here too. I go against the grain I guess, I like the light red cast better of the two. That's why it's art and not science I guess.
  14. I like the B&W better also. The original has too much of that faded old print film look to it. Eyes are bit too crystalline for the overall softness of the image IMO.

    I think that this is the reason I do like it. It makes my imagination start working.
  18. bw better, yes
  19. I'm not a fan of the image in the OP, the black and white version is much better IMO... Either way, Kasia is still beautiful!!!

    Thanks Paul.

    Thanks you Laura.

    Thanks Keith I appreciate your input - my first attempt at this kind of processing. Good thing for the Café because sometimes I don't have a clue about what is good and what is not. I agree, Kasia's beauty makes me look like a better photog.
