Default The "Dude" on the right

Hi guys! Perhaps this photo belongs in the Digital Art forum, but since I used my Pentax K7, well I thought you might like to see this... Spent a couple of hours matching the 2 photos to make them look about the same, added fake rips or tares in the photo, used Topaz B/W for the toning, other than ADDING noise and learning how to use Topax ReMask for the first time... here is my shot... Ok, so I watched the movie "Lincoln", bear with me... I am on the left, but to test your History, do you know the dude on the right?

Thanks for looking.

Ned

That's Pierre Gustav Toutant Beauregard. He was the commanding general that opened the War of Secession.

I would have absolutely never known that!

I just signed up for a b&w photography class. In the first lesson he talks about using Topaz and also Silver Efex Pro2.

You did a great job making it look real.

I've been studying the American Civil War (War of Secession or War of Rebellion) for about 35 years now.

Thanks Patty! Hope you enjoy the class! And, Topaz B & W, it is redesigned, really revamped... You would really enjoy it. There webinars on Youtube that you can watch! Thanks again and all the best. Ned

I don't actually have Topaz. The instructor just mentioned it in the first lesson. So far I'm just using PSE11 to adjust photos.

We'll see how that goes.

Ned, you could have fooled me. Great PP work, you blend in like you were there when the picture was taken.
