Dyu-d

A lovely shot and it works very well with that yellow flower. The little girl is a really cutie and the expression on her face really makes the shot.

Cheers

Gorgeous shot of the child. Also, that is a neat trick. Hope I can learn how to do that. Can it be done in Photoshop Elements 4?

Can it be also done in Microsoft Digital Image?

That impressive Dyu. I don't normally like the style which the TV people use in some adverts but looking at the shot of the gorgeous child and the contrasting flower, I have changed my mind. Well done

Thank you everyone for appreciating the shot.

However looks like the PS trick is what caught a lot of imagination. Well i did this in PS.

Its very simple ... there were around 4 ways that the magazine suggested (better photography available in India, maybe abroad too) but the simplist one is what i used.

I just first converted the picture to B & W (for this i used a photoshop plugin that i downloaded called Optikverve.. you could convert it into B & W in any other way. For eg Greyscale mode (though it is not the best way to convert to B & W)

Then i applied the history brush on the area where i didnt want the effect. In this case the flower. And voila! there you have it.

Here is another one that i tried.

Let me know ur thoughts

Cool job, both.Works particularly well with human subjects. Digital Imaging should be called Digital Imagining, I suppose!
