  • It takes me at least 3 hours to remove an easily masked background.  Thank you for posting early, alleviating me of embarrassing myself. Scott
  • Replied in Not warranted
    Three, as I recall having spoken to the reps at Adobe.  I'm unsure if that might be the requirement for month-to-month or if it applies to a payment remittance that includes a year. Scott
  • Hey, there are a number of expert retouchers on this forum.  If you don't mind the compliment, you're one of them.  This one was a challenge.  I'm curious as to how much time was spent on this ...
  • Ray, Brilliant work.  Gosh, I remember Coronation Street, having lived in the U.K. in the mid-70's.  Upstairs Downstairs, and Man About the House...  that was later spun off as a sitcom in the ...
  • Replied in Actually . . .
    I'd agree with Henry Stamm's assessment.  I think what bother's me the most is the lack of space between subject's right arm, with respect to the edge of frame.  Color, tonal, and contrast is well ...
  • In complete agreement. Scott
  • $10/month, or the one year commitment for $120..  I don't see the break being extended by a long(er) contractual agreement.  It's a predictable revenue, beneficial only to the seller - Adobe, and ...
  • Thanks, Mario.  That answers my question. Scott
  • Ray, Unsure of what is meant by "usual", as every smudge posted is beyond excellent.  I see no "usual" with any of your work. Scott
  • Nicely done..  One question about Photomatix..  Was this originally a RAW image?  I ask because I was under the impression that outside of multiple images processed with Photomatix, only a single ...
  • As a hobbyist photographer, I love the backlit hair.  I should have spent more time post processing this image as it deserved more.  Really, a nice capture in my opinion and some artificial fill ...
  • Again, I'm going expose my ignorance and probably do things the hard way.  PS has a multitude of brushes.  I'm no expert, played with a few trying to learn the "Guselli Smudge" technique with ...
  • Replied in The Goddess
    Thanks, Lyle.  I've a lot to learn.  Couldn't figure out clouds at the bottom.  Or, rendering "rays" from the orb.  Just playing around and having fun.  Definitely not of the caliber of you and ...
  • Replied in The Goddess
    Hardly the artistry or creativity. A different take. Scott
  • Replied in The Goddess
    Twelve years is just about as long as I've been playing with Photoshop.  And, I still don't know what I'm doing.  :-) Scott
  • Replied in The Goddess
    An hours worth of my effort has yet to produce anything close.  Well done. Scott
  • Backlighting is always a challenge.  Perhaps consider flash fill for a balance on the subject? Scott
  • I've twenty bucks saying this isn't nearly as appetizing in Lego's or an Ice Sculpture. :-)  Marbles, maybe, but that's stretching it. Scott
  • Nice play, Michael.  The butterfly is positioned perfectly. Scott
  • Played with perspective and retained original color with a slight crop.  Nice composition and I don't feel I did it justice. Scott
