365_290 / Mmmm... that is SO good!

An experiment in post-processing... leaning heavily into a

photo-illustration style. I know... not everyone's cup of tea. =)

An alternate treatment of a photo I've used in a triptych earlier

(365_264 / Gettin' Dirty).


SOOC was uninspired, a complete miss of an expressive

moment. And in this case, it's NOT the photo itself that is the

hero... there are any number of issues with it. But the moment

of ice cream bliss is priceless! So... how to 'get there'?

Working this photo to this degree is one way... but by no

means the ONLY way.


My goal is to showcase the moment... rather than simply an

all-out attempt to hide the flaws in a truly photo-realistic way.

Next time I think I'll dial down the noise a bit more... even

though within the context of this style, I like it well enough.


Never... stop... learning. =)

'Rolling of the eyes' good... bigger on black!


All effects and texturing 'home-cooked' with insight from

Scott Kelby's very interesting '7-Point System' book.
