thanksI like to see how people can manipulate a digital image and this is really nice, good job and fits the theme well.
I do like to play around with processing too but I think this may be a step to far, although it is impressive how powerful photoshop is it’s not something I would ever use, feels a bit like cheating.I like it Alan, but then I like playing around with the processing. Spot on theme.
There are numerous filters and presets to manipulate digital images and most are just that; digital manipulation which doesn't resemble photography at all but what you've done is real and very good. It more like a watercolour painting than a digital photo.
ThanksI don't think some subjects suit didgital manipulation but that one works for me.
Nice of you to pass by and thank you for looking in, you can go back to sleep nowHeya Allan,
Sharp - Nice use of DoF to have the sharpest point sharp, along with colour matching of the handle and background.
Digital - Very different from the original, kind of a watercolour effect perhaps? Anyway, bang on for the theme and nicely executed.
Snapper Choice - A prototypical Allan shot (as you would expect for snappers choice), simple, clear, strong dark background and well executed as always.
