MY KITTY "LUCKY BOY"

On The Picnic Bench While Camping.

!!! LOOK CLOSELY !!!
The Fractalius Filter and DDR
Is EVERYWHERE But On Lucky's FACE!

How Was This Done?
I Used and Selective Lasso On the Face.
Then Used The Fract Filter On All Else
Then: Curved To Lighten, Recurved to bring out Blacks.

Hi, Pommers!
You captured a sweet shot of Lucky Boy to start with, and used the selective color/selective Frac filter so well ~ your DDR work produced some striking and beautiful results. If anyone is going to go through Photoshop from first page to last, it'll be YOU!

I must admit that I have been "Frac'd Out" for a long time, but you keep finding ways to get a smile out of me. This is nicely done and the kitty is just SO cute! Like the ecru beam better than the green on this.

Pom, it was wonderful to find Lucky's image in the Digital Darkroom newsletter! (He's 18 years old? Wow!)
Clearly the bp judges found him (and your DDR work) to be worthy of a display. BTW, Congrats again on his Finalist selection.
You can count on many more people swingin' by your gallery now. Remember your Vitamin E for energy ~ you'll need it to correspond with all the new friends you make!

Hi Mare and Mumj! :))) Two of my favorite ladies here at once.

It was such an honor to learn that BP had chosen Lucky to be in their DDR News letter!

It will always stand as a tribute to him.

I love this piece. It was fun to do. Thanks so much for the congrats and for all you said.

ALSO for your support, too.
