Manuela Photography from Hainburg (near Frankfurt/Main), Germany

Very creative but I think I still prefer the one posted in your "about" page... ;)

@Manuela Photography: Thanks - experimenting! My wife agrees with you:-)

emarquetti from Itajai, Brazil

Well done! It´s look like as made in metal relief .

@emarquetti: Thanks emarquetti!

Anne from White Rock, Canada

I have to agree with Manuela and Linda - I think you did it to hide the dog hairs on your sleeve, haha! Good cover-up image!

@Anne: Were those from my blond girlfriend or the Labradors????? Linda will be delighted to know she has another ally!

Anne from White Rock, Canada

PS. It also reminds me of the negative images I used to peer at on my easel - when I printed my own from film!

1 Mar 2007 12:44pm

@Anne: Gotcha - I grew up with a Dad that had his own dark room - lots of fun!

Francis from Hong Kong

Wow , that's a pretty cool effect .Kind of like embossing

Dan Meyers from Macomb, United States

Great self portrait!

@Dan Meyers: Thanks Dan! I definitely look better distorted! :-)

Ken McCoy from Orlando-Daytona Beach, FL, United States

I see YOU have been having with PS as well :) Nice effect -- I like the "frame overlay." It's subtle but it makes it look more like "art."

1 Mar 2007 2:25pm

@Ken McCoy: Thanks Ken - been having a ball learning...

kaveh from TEHRAN, Iran

Great processing! beautiful self portrait!!

Evie Sears from United States

Pretty cool. Sometimes post-processing is just downright fun.

1 Mar 2007 7:20pm

@Evie Sears: Thanks Evie - It's downright consuming! I am really just scratching the surface on PS and really admire all those than can use it to maximize their images!!! Lots of fun learning! Cheers - always enjoy your kind words!

Sidonie from Sydney, Australia

Very attractive - maintaining the fine outlines is the real challenge in this sort of process, and your lines here are so clear, I'm wondering what the netting is for around the tree trunk and garden in the background!

1 Mar 2007 7:25pm

@Sidonie: Thanks Sidonie! I must plead luck on the lines - just learning. The netting is required around protected trees during construction - building new houses across the street and next door....

Abdullah from Esfahan, Iran

Stunning!... Very Nicely Done Jerry!

@Abdullah: Many thanks Abdullah!
