    Dave, I really like your serve, I would be interested to see how much photomanipulation work went into it, and how much is original. It has a very cool canvas-y feel because of your overlay, an effect I think alot of people go for but usually turn out ruining their image with.

    I second that. Very soft feel to your image. The soft pattern overlay complements the monocromatic style of that image quite well. Interesting to see how this one turns out.
    It'll be interesting to see what "lefteye" comes up with. I have not seen enough work from you Dave-O but what I see so far is very impressive. Now lefteye, I've seen this cat's work. Should be a fun and texturific one to watch!!!

    nice, I like how the girl is outside the border. Very poetic, like she's home but its not home and shes looking in from outside. Or maybe you just thought it looked cool

    Either way, I can dig

    Hey Lefteye, how do you get that soft feel to your image. Almoust dream like. Do you use the smudge tool? Good piece of work by the way. I agree with Nords, there is an earie feel to your image.

    Quite impressive guys...

    Nepzap, I'm almost willing to bet that he duplicated the image, applied a slight gaussian blur - about 2-4 pixels at the highest - adjusted the levels a slight bit to a bit lighter than the original and then Soft Light on that layer. If you desaturate the blurred copy, and then lower the opacity and deepen the shadows, you can actually add a deeper quality to the shadows and still keep that dreamy look... Soft Light as well.

    It's very close to the "glamour shots" style... it'll smooth out highlights, add a bit o' contrast, and can make it all look "dreamy".

    That's how I'd do it... with Photoshop, there's usually 10 different ways for the same output.
