Any suggestions as to what I could do with the washed out face? The tone of the photo is what I want it to be but her face brings "geisha" or "mask" to mind.
They're probably weeds but they're the spring shoots and I was pleased with the insubstantial being in focus surrounded by a great bokeh.
An experiment in the abstract. The first layer is a tulip, actually just a few petals of a tulip, with the Coffeeshop Ice Pop action. The next layer is a texture that I'd created with another texture (Rebecca Parker) over that one. Each texture had some low opacity erasing done in different areas of the picture.
A ficus covered in small white lights. Two PW Slight Light actions (no flattening) then low opacity erasing of the lights. The final layer was the Oil Tanker texture at 40%, again erasing the lights at low opacity.
