Very nice mood to the image. Always enjoy looking at your work.
Eric - thank you for your comment. Nice to hear from you.
Those who are currently critiquing this image on other forums have mentioned that the white at the bottom is discordant with the rest of the image. I have to agree. I have tried a fix - better?
Very nice - the DOF makes it with the hat really jumping out of the frame. Agree about the harsh white. Excellent fix, looking at how blown out it appears in the first, I'm curious as to how you came up with the texture in the second Tuna?
This has such a wonderful artisitry about it! I do like the second better with the fix, good job there! This photo also makes me very curious as to who is behind that hat! : )
OBrien, photo gal - thank you for your comments and I'm glad the fix works.
OBrien, I simply took the original file and did curves/levels/color adjustments until the towel looked like it should. Then I sized the file to match my initial post, used the wand to select the fixed towel and moved it on top of the blown-out towel, merged the layers and did some blending and cloning of the edges to finish the image.
photo gal, the mystery of not seeing the person under the hat adds to the appeal of the image for me as well.
the blown area in the first is distracting and you've repaired it quite nicely. as always Tuna...exceptional work!
