These are some very nice shots Frank. Did you hand hold these or use a tripod?

All hand hold, I do have a tripod but it's hardly used.

Frank, I reckon the pics are great!

I've now got the plug-in and would appreciate some help with settings.

What filter and settings d'you recall using for the samples you've posted?

Although a simple interface, the combination of adjustments is causing me a bit of confusion. So your help would be invaluable.

Hope you can help.

Regards


John

Hi,
Most of the time I start with Wyeth arround 40%
As a base from there I mix the original layers and use dodge/burn and the eraser to get the effect I want.

That is why its called an art. Some only appreciate photography in its purest form and are tolerant of composition manipulation through lighting and filters. While photography has always been consideredart form by many,today a lot more can be done with digital so I'm sure you will be seeing a lot more expression in images. Of course as with any art form,art appreciation is very subjective and interpretive.

Normally I don't do street photography so be gentle, but I believe it's something I will be doing more.

Very Very Nice

Photoshop is indeed for some people a taboo.
On the other hand, the darkroom was in the early days the room where this took place, than it was called art.

For me the digital photography and digital options for work opens a whole new area of expertise AND photography.

Photography will change the coming years, it's just for some people a little getting used to.
