Bynx,
Except for the slightly distracting background spots I think the conversion is excellent. I guess the bright spot on the nose could be also toned dwon a tad.

I agree with you. I never liked the background but left it. I will address both problems and repost.

I have never been able to get the watercolor effect so fine. Size of brush? Very effective shot.

#3 for me. Good job. It's not easy to work with that effect.

I like number 3 but it makes the gentleman look about 50 pounds heavier!
