Photo Art Friday - March 14

This week's exercise is "portrait"......any way we wish to interpret it.  I'm still learning to take pictures of myself.  This is one 
of my first.  I processed it in Topaz Adjust for 
the highly contrasted image.  I used the cutout filter to make it 
a bit more posterish in the next image.  I wish it were that easy to color my hair!!
The bottom is the original photo SOOC.
I could play with this a lot more.  It's a fun exercise.
Be sure and hop over to Bonnie's place to 
view lots more interpretations of "portrait".

I love how you used the filters to alter the photo in different ways. I use the cutout filter a lot--I love what it does.

Funny, beautiful picture, very handsome effects ...

This layout really illustrates the amazingly different effects that can be achieved with digital editing! Reminds me that just because I have worked once with an image doesn't mean I can't go back and create something else entirely different with it! Thanks, Marilyn.

I really like the 2nd one the right, it looks like a pencil drawing.

I so DO NOT understand the filters and such, but when I see such marvels as you've done here I am certain I will want to learn more!!

I really like what you've done and I am glad I was NOT the only one who linked Portrait to Self-Portrait.

Very BEautimously done. YAY!!!

Nicely done. It was fun seeing how the different filters changed the original.

I love these variations! The last one at the bottom is my fave though, lovely effect :)

Oh I love what you have done here. I play in Topaz a lot and find it was a great way to turn a self portrait which I just didn't like into something I could at least look at. Playing with the filters has helped me to 'not mind' making a self portrait now.

So glad I got to see your portrait. I haven't participated for a few weeks...today first time visiting blogs in quite awhile. Yours is always so special, fun, lots of variety. You did a great job with your different profiles...it has to be a bit of an anxiety builder. You got a terrific angle. Enjoy the peeps of spring. smiles: sharon
