    The bee could have been alot sharper but I was only hand holding and should have taken my tripod
    Some more shots this time taken last week in Cornwall while on vacation with my old 4 meg Olympus

    Thanks for the comps guys
    I went to Kent Hills manor today and the Tudor enactors were out in force so I could not help getting some portrats
    The frames are just for image isolation purposes but I had great fun playing with the effects.

    I tried on the first shot to give the feel of the portrait artists of that time without using that bloody awfull artistic paintbrush crap in the software if I want a painting i'll take up painting, I'm rather pleased with ithe result considering it was my first attempt at playing with effects

    The second shot I was pleased with the composition but my attempt at using soft focus in Paintshop Pro X3 is not so hot
    Ive got a few more to post but thats for tomorrow

    The framed photo is cool, gives it an antique quality to it, and well done on the second photo!

    The pose of the girl and the way the trees are offset...really really nice!

    I really like the second one too. I think it needs something though, like may some black and white w/sepia or something like that.

    Thanks for the reviews guys the more the better it really helps with my learning curve
    Eric you.re dead right, Ive sepia-ed the shot and its really given it a lift so Ive posted it again to show the difference
    and added a couple more shots I feel happier with the soft focus this time on the duo kids picture

    Nice shots Lee. That one looks better in sepia, however I think it make look better again in black and white with some added contrast. As for the others I think they also could be improved by the changing them to black and white/sepia.

    That does look better, IMO. There is something about people an monochrome, especially with the right face or pose.
