    love it. Lincoln's facial expression looks a little arch in this lighting--interesting.

    Saw your post this had been used for the tour site. Went there and now I'm here... congrats on the cc licensed shot being used. Too bad there's not a you-gotta-tell-me-you're-using-this license; were there, you'd have found out much sooner.

    Did you add the copper tones to this shot in honor of his place on the penny? Or was it mostly copper colored as it was?

  9. Stuck in Customs 93 months ago | reply

    Thanks all - no - these colors were naturally in the light already

    What Troubles You Have Seen

    Trey - I have adapted your marvelous photo of Mr. Lincoln as per your CC licensing. I used Fractalius (plug-in) for the main effects, then added a slight tonal effect in Picasa. I hope you approve.

    I added my comment, then looked at who's work I was viewing, I'm not surprised. Trey, you continue to impress me with your creative skills.
