Thank you Rolan. I think it looks like a woodcut. #6321429

Hi Djoanne....your right it does look like a wood cut. What would it look like if you backed off on the threshold a bit? Lots of possibilities. Nice job!!! #6323121

Go here and see what else I did with this photo. Thank you for your kind comment. #6323829

OH COOL! His is right up my alley.

Lonnie, what is meant by backing off on the threshold? Not making it so dramatic BLACK AND WHITE? If she did this what would likely happen? More of a gainey look instead of thick black?

Djoanne the ID wont work. We need the web link.

ie: the web link for this shot here is:

See it above here on your screen? So you need to go and copy then paste the other one here for us. :) -Laura #6335694

I adjusted the threshold until, I thought, I had the most detail and most pleasing look. There is only black or white to work with.
Thank you Lonnie and Laura for looking and commenting. #6336305

Wouldn't this just rock on a black T-shirt!!! Very cool, this simple shape was perfect for your effects, bravo! #6336820

Sorry for all of my type-O's. I get going too fast! Eek!

"This" not "His"
"grainy" not "gainey"
