    I threw this one in the freezer when I got home yesterday, pulled it out this morning and went at it with the hairdryer and stylus :lol: kind of overdid it, but im still trying to find that 'middle ground'.

    This is not overdoing it. Not IMO.

    Consider that you can legibly make out the sign, the detail on the building, etc. :thumbup: You've softened the lines to give it that almost-Impressionistic feel. The image is intact, just....manipulated. ;) Very nicely done!

    More like this, please. :mrgreen:

    And you know that "art" isn't about finding a middle ground, girlie. I would argue it's about finding your own ground, which is different - and you're the only one who can get you there.

    Kinda scary, kinda thrilling - but take that ride! :D

    I really like this! Made me say "WOW!" out loud :D I've tried my hand at manipulation a few times and my results were....um...yeah...so I have a lot of respect for what you've done here.

    SX-70 manipulation, using the soon-to-be-off-the-market Polaroid Time Zero film.
