Whoa, this is a terrific image, Ann. How did you get the background like that? #491975

Thank you Graeme. This image took me a loooooong time to produce. It was a dancer taken in the park, on the grass among a crowd of viewers. I had to carefully select her, crop, adjust, and remove all of the distracting background. Next, I used layers to apply motion blur to the background, which created that trail of colour from her costume. I then erased the girl to bring her clearly forward and left the rest as a blur. Finally, I applied a slight "art" filter effect to the whole image. The picture looks great printed on stretched canvas. #3089245

Hi Ann,
Wonderful Image! Do you do the printing on canvas yourself or go through a company? A friend wants a photo on canvas but checking prices don't know if I want to spend the money and not be pleased with the result.
Thanks for your time.
