    Nothing revolutionary, but I thought some might like to see how a shot off the knee can potentially be dolled up. Of course her features bring a lot to the table.

    Well, I think that stopping at "Smooth" would have been better, but then I don't usually like the PS filters available.

    I'm not big on filters either but since I was looking at serious compression artifacts, some dithering from the over-smoothing and only 1200 pixels after the crop, I went there... a rescue mission of sorts. Plus I did not secure a model release so I wanted to abstract the identity a bit...

    Maybe you will like this full version with the face manually worked and preserved better,.. I like the odd sharpening & glow in part from the filtering, over exposure & blur in composite elements.

    But it is just a fun experiment anyway! Thanks for commenting.
