    Ahoy all!

    Caught this image (one of many) when my grandaugters were around recently. Only cropped, resized and de-noised.

    Olympus E500 (I can't remember which lens I had on - I used both). I'm no expert, but apart from the fact I love her to bits, I thought this image is quite 'moody'.

    Any thoughts? I'm hopeless at PP (I have CS2 and PSP X). I just use them for making basic adjustments etc. :D

    You've some beautiful granddaughters P and I hope you've printed off your competition entry of Georgia :thumbsup:

    Had a little play on this one to give it a softer more dreamy appearance, helps soften the background as well, hope you don't mind if you do I'll delete :)

    That's a nice bit of pp Zone. Would be even better on the original I suspect. How did you achieve the dreamy look ?

    Ahoy Z!

    No problemo Zonester. I just try to get the basics done. In this case, I thought it was good enough out of the camera, but PP can create some interesting results. As I said, I know little about PP techniques, so it's trial and error, but I like your version in any case.

    New laptop Ray so haven't even got PS loaded as yet, its a plugin for Irfanview and PS for that matter from optikvervelabs so I had very little input but they have some pretty decent presets that can be user refined, worth a play ;)
