First let me say welcome back! I can see that you were a regular participant during the first incarnation of pM, and all of us here now (some old, some new) would be so happy to have you back in the village.

That is a wonderfully imaginative portrait. I'm not sure what all you've done here but it works. Your use of texture is what makes this so creepily engaging for me (and the color work). I am trying to teach myself use of texture and sometimes I think I'm learning something and sometimes I think I'm losing more than I'm gaining with it. I'd sure love to see more of your work.

Look around and make yourself at home once again. Duck has gifted us with a nice sleek new interface that makes navigation easier, and though our citizenry is not large, it is smart and collegial, and those are good things.

Cool. Seems to follow Steve's rule of un-thirds. Well done. Matt, one of the new villagers.

Oh, I see how it is, you pop back in and Wham, you hit us with something beautiful! I love it!

Can you tell us a bit more about this image, visualization, processing, whatever you like?

Hi Shine,

It has awesome punch you in the face impact. BUT, having said so, for some reason I want the reflection of the Wiz-ard covered in cobwebs, dim, sneaking up on you, the LAST thing you see - as dark, gloomy, dirty, no - more so as the scene you put him in. As you have it, it is like shiny dancing shoes in a dark alley. Lots of contrast impact doing it that way, I just feel it is not necessary. The man is too bright and contemplatively cheerful for the place in which he does his business. Go completely dismal spooky horror.

Good to see you once again Shine !!!

While this is an excellent image for venturing away from your norm, I find it to be appealing and powerful with a strong message. Looking forward to seeing more from you and hope all is well.

No, Shine, I have not. I am too lazy to learn PS, although I have resolved several times to do so. With enough people urging me, though, who knows? Matt
