Sometimes a photo just will not come out the way I expect it to - and eventhough this young lady is photogenic, the image I created just was not satisfactory. I did a couple of things to make it something else. These are some things I did.
1. did a little touchup.
2. evened out some skin tones.
3. desaturated and reduced contrast considerbly.
4. cropped the photo and made it landscape instead of portrait
5. increased image size
6. rendered it to similate an oil painting
7. increased the saturation
8. increased the contrast
If you double click on the photo it will enlarge and you will see more of the rendering qualities in a double image.
Thanks, Miss Naomi, for your great patience.
