Blurred and out of focus, but just too precious to toss.

Glad you are happy with the result. I'm not putting forth my opinion.

I guess I'll just wallow in the bliss of ignorance while I can. :D

But I asked my wife and she gave the thumbs down and said "scary". Hmmph! Guess I won't be hanging it on the walls.

I like it. I normally don't like photoshopped images, but this one I like. The picture looks like a painting rather than a PS rendered image.

I agree. The composition, how the lace fell a little too perfectly, the flower colors and how PS rendered the grass and leaf patches, all sort of painting like in composition, and un-photo like. Even the slightly odd smile placement and oversized looking ear are unphoto liike. The uncomplementary and unfeminen hair do are also non-conformist artist like.

To me, its art, and if some people hates it, even more so. But since my wife is among the haters, I'll just sit in the files. :(

There's no need to stop there. There are other PS/PSP things you could try with it. The face is definitely cherubic, --or hobbitlike! and deserves some more experimentation.

I tried a bunch of the filters (sketch, watercolor, etc) and this one seemed the most appropriate and least distorting. I really like the color mix so stayed clear of the charcoal and such.

I suppose a dragon's wing swooping from the sky or night creature would be interesting. Hmmmm, hobit like...

Here is another blury photo I just had to do something with ...

This photo turned out good. I like it. Her facial detail is still there and you can see the smile, lovely smile.

I printed about 20, she colors with it (my daughter, if you hadn't guessed).

Hey, maybe I could take shots of interesting stuff and people and start publishing coloring books. Sure is easy enough. Guess that's one way to "get published".
