My Final Manipulation of This Image  

As you may recall, my first post of this photo was a pretty straight rendition of the negative. In his comment on that post madtruk speculated about what it might look like if I were to experiment with filters, so I messed around and created the version which you may see in this post. Finally, I went really wild and came up with the version you see below. (Note: It looks best at the larger size.) And now I'll move on to other images. Thank you for your interest and attention.

This is one of those cases where the filter work really brings out the artistry in the original photograph. I could see it hiding in the original, but didn't think of a way to tap it, to shift the balance and attention away from the super soft focus, which I am super sensitive to (and not necessarily in a good way).

Congratulations. And thank you and madtruk!

Thanks! I'm very glad you like it. I reckon the Liquify filter is one of those that if you're going to use it at all it's best to eschew subtlety. I reckon. (The other filter in play here is Poster Edges, in case you were wondering. I think it added some nice touches.)

I believe you'd know better than I, but I suspect it is, yes.

That's kinda neat; I like the twisty-melty effect. :D
