better? Penny STreet
Many great tones and textures here. I especially like the details of the frilly curtain fringes and the sheen of the xylophone keys. I agree with Rod about the cloning of the smudge at the top. -tv
thanks. I was planning on trying it both ways. Penny STreet
I don't think I would like to see the tree as I think it would disturb the balance between the xylophone & curtains. If anything I would clone out the little fragments of tree.
Thanks for the comments. Sorry Debi. I just didn't feel good about the manipulation of the top of that building - and it didn't go far. This photo is dear to my heart - my daughter is currently a marimba/percussion grad student. This xylophone is hers, that she used in high school, and it still sits in our little "music" room with the piano, etc Once she has a place of her own that's big enough, she will take it (and the drum set and all the other "toys") with her. Yes, Jano, there is a tree. I will think on doing something with that. Thanks for the suggestion. Penny Street
Great image Penny - If I'm not mistaken I can see a hint of a tree outside the window which I wish was a little more apparent - I think that would work well for an interest factor - giving this image some depth also. Well done. jano
This has turned out really good - but I was sorry to see the building go - Debi
Excellent picy Penny, I luv the look of this with rich blacks & all. Very well done.
Nicely done Penny, do you play it?
