ha, so you have given it back its colour and in a beautiful way, excellent work Rosalyn, worth printing for suresmile
Rosalyn Sears: Glad you like it, tim. It was the best way I could think of using the colour and disguising the blemishes caused by the mesh fencing. I guess I could work a bit more on this and remove the diamonds in the background too - but time is tight! (:o)
I like the way you've given it back its colours Roz!
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Richard. I wanted to find a way to use the colour, but disguise the blemishes caused by the wire fencing. (:o)

This is superb, Roz. You have done wonderful stuff with your PP tools.
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Ray. I am still in the very early stages of getting to grips with Photoshop. This is a one click filter effect, but I was happy with it. (:o)

The effect is great - is it one of the PS filters?
Rosalyn Sears: It is, Louis. It is photoshop elements 5, in the artistic filters and it is called `cutout`. I`ve used it on quite a few photographs, and I like the effect. (:o)

I love the lazy look of this very handsome fella, I like the pp this way very much, nice job here Roz.
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Astrid. Happy to know you like it. (:o)
Interesting shot.
Rosalyn Sears: It`s a bit different. (:o)
Nice twiddling!! This would make a good poster
Rosalyn Sears: Glad you like it, Bill. (:o)
Very well done, I like very much this creative work !
Rosalyn Sears: I am very pleased to hear that you like it. (:o)
Like the "treatment" Rosalyn, and the colours are great.
Rosalyn Sears: Thanks, brian. (:o)
Very arty too Ros smile
Rosalyn Sears: It was the best way I could find to use the colour in the photograph, and hide the blemishes too. (:o)

Well it's got rid of the blurring over the eye! Interesting treatment and I love the title! I actually have a picture of the Dragon stroking a fully grown, male lion. Now that's something that gives really mixed feelings zoos.
Rosalyn Sears: Yep! Got it in one. I played with lots of different filters to see what would happen, and this one worked really well in getting rid of that blurring caused by the fence. So frustrating that it was right across the eye, too. I am putting a photograph up later this week, in the hope that one of our expert `photoshoppers` will volunteer to work on it for me. I am still on `L` plates in photoshop, and can`t get to grips with the whole `layers` thing.

As for zoos - I do have mixed feelings, but Marwell is doing some great you will see later in the series. (:o)

That's a rather nice effect Roz, I do like it.

I might have been tempted to lose the shapes from the wire, but that's me, not you wink
Rosalyn Sears: Glad you like it, Ellie. I agree, I could do with spending some time on that background but, as ever, time is at a premium. Everything good with you? (:o)

LOL first reaction was that it would make a great album cover.
