    Okay so.... on this I can take all the advice you can give. I'm just having fun with the editing and looking to get creative with textures and whatnot. This was one of my first attempts. The hair was the hard part. Any advice on these types of edits is welcome. Harsh or not I can take it since this is completely recreational. Thanks!

    I just... don't like it.

    I would like it a little more than hating it if it were to be reversed... like, person in colour and background B&W.

    I also can't dig whatever "AnTiQuE pHoTo FiLtEr" you put on it :er:

    No photo filters.
    But maybe I'll give that reverse a try.

    But like I said I'm going for a heavy edit with use of textures.

    texture yes... I layered the original pic with a colored texture background and blended. Is that considered a photo filter?

    The full colour is so much better! I really like it! The contrast with her red hair, the blue shirt and the green grass is great. Although the purple flowers are a bit distracting.

    #1 :thumbup: (in the second post, with the B&W)

    It's my favorite!! A very pretty portrait.

    I know you said you want to experiment, but try picking a not-so-good shot and then enhancing it. The problem here was that shot you took was beautiful to begin with, so enhancing it took away from that.

    Do you have a vertical shot without her head cropped off?

    What I do like in the 1st shot is the light color cast in the b&w part, especially the blue in the eyes.

    Not exactly. I have this one but I think the effect on this one would look to strange because of the lose of depth.
