Did you use a soft focus filter on the camera? Or something in photoshop. Whatever you did it looks very good! #28753

Very neat shot, Carl! How do you do Doutone? Great job! #75629

Thanks a lot Gene and Stephanie. Actually Gene I got the soft effect the old fashioned way, I just fogged the lens with my breath since I din't have my filters with me at the time. Stephanie, if you work in Photoshop at all you can experiment quite a bit with doutone, tritone or even quadtone. The image has to be grayscale, then just select a shade of gray and then and a 2nd color like a brown (could be any color). Just experiment until you find a combination you like and that suits the mood of your shot.
Hope to see one of your own soon. :-)

Thanks Carl, I have photoshop 6 and don't know how to use it at all LOL I scan and then add a bit of contrast and that is the extenet of my knowledge. I will have to learn, because this is really cool. Thanks so much!!
