wow! love the picture!
Fantastic picture. I really like the blurred background (was that in the photo or post-edit?) and the color on black-and-white technique (where have I seen that lately?) I feel kind of stupid showing you my piddling effort when you have such a great example of the technique! (Of course, it helps when you have such a wonderful subject!)
lovely photo of you. i like the soft pastel feel. will check out his site for sure!
dad; i didn't think your effort was piddling!! we loved the pictures you showed us!!
Oh, Emily, this is fantastic! What a wonderful portrait. Have you considered using it on your blog template somehow? Maybe you could cut some off the top and bottom, to make it more like a panorama, and then put your heading words above the waves, off to the left?
just a quick note from the photographer - i'm glad you all liked the picture! i think it's hard to have a bad photo with emily in the frame. :) and to wayne - this picture is not any better than the ones you showed us, especially of the pink rose.
just fyi, the blurring is easy - you duplicate the main picture on a new layer, and blur that layer a LOT, then set the opacity of that blurred layer to something less than 100% (usually less than 50%). i got that from www.gimpguru.org and from my friend jason tanner.
you can see the original picture on my website to see what changes i made to it.
This is really cool. I'm really impressed with the creativity of it!
i love it!
came back to say i just saw tons of great pics of you at s's site. i guess you've always been gorgeous...?!
Yes. I've known her all her life. She has always been gorgeous. Poor thing.
you jokers, cut it out! you're makin' me blush!
