Ok, I am trying to get with the New Millenium and play with textures. I just downloaded a bunch of them and tried different ones. I have aLOT more playing to do before I really get the hang of turning a normal photograph into something edgy and artistic -- but I kind of liked the old timey, old-world look this gave to my Abby. I think she has such classic old-timey beauty anyway.

Abby does NOT pose for photos. She hates having her picture taken (she comes by it honestly. Both her mom and me are like that), so to capture her, it has to be on the sly -- like here I was at a distance with my zoom lens.

This is just fantastic, Sandy! An awesome example of the the effective use of textures and effects to create a beautiful work of art. ...well a beautiful work of Sandy, I should say. ;-)

Very artistic and 'edgy' if you ask me. Love the soft finish and the pastels.

Is the filter called "Renoir?" Because that's what this looks like. Beautiful child and beautiful colors.

This is so artful. Your processing of this is perfectly wonderful. I couldn't imagine this looking any other way.

This looks like a turn of the century (1900's) advertisment. Very well done.

Sandy I think this is just perfect from the soft colours to the sweet expression on her face, I have to make this a favorite, how could I not!

Whatever you did, you did it well. Reminds me of an old drawing.

I'd say you've got the hang of it - this works very well with this picture. I love how her eyes just grab you, too. I like how you kept color in the subject but not the background, whether through composition or post processing. Nice work.
