    That is weird and distrubing Wallace. Though it does remind mind me of Picassos blue period, where eyes and noses would be at odds with each other.Not sure the model would be pleased though!!!!!!

    You’re scaring me Wallace!!!! 😉 Actually your first one is very clever and takes a bit of working out. Though as Meg says I doubt the model would get much work from it. The conventional one is a lovely photograph that would I am sure please her no end.

    Here’s one of my efforts. Not as good as yours Wallace.

    Very Good Delores, I like the first one better as the textures are more evedent, with the darker image the eyes are better defined. May be you could use a levels adjustment layer and make the image a little brighter but not as much as in the Auto setting.

    I see what you mean Wallace.  Something between the 2 would be about right as auto has gone a bit too far and over bright.  T’was just a late night last minute tweak in windows gallery tools.

    Have sent some of my images over to Ken to play with as he couldn’t make the night.  So now for something completely different!  Enjoy Ken 😉

    Nice to see some portraits hitting the forum. last year we saw so little of them. I’m as guilty for not posting any either. But will post some this year. Like Dolores I had tweaked some on Auto levels but felt it lightened them too much the other way. So I agree with Dolores that somewhere between the two levels would be best.

    Is that split toning Meg?Something different!  Nice to have just a hint of colour and it’s lovely and sharp.  I think a little tweak on the levels or shadows etc to brighten it a little might improve it as the hair is very dark and lacking definition especially at the top 🙂

    I think I’ve gone overboard, but on my screen it didn’t look as dark, Honest! No I don’t think its spilt toning I’ taken the colour levels down to almost B/W and just left a hint of colour in the portait. I think its the vingette thats gone abit heavy on the edges. As you say I just need to tweak a bit to get it 100%.
