The great thing about this photo is that you can go for the natural http://www.redbubble.com/people/khosie/art/1334...

or the souped up view that is here..

If I was an up myself photographer I would say the image was completely intentional… ;op

Because I can’t lie to save myself…. :o)

Here are the facts. I have had Photoshop for 2 days. I have had a 20 minute lesson in photoshop and I bought a magazine that gave some tips on photoshop. (And not right may I suggest… can’t believe I am a novice and I worked out that they hadn’t given the right instructions!!) So yes, for all you gurus out there you will have a good giggle. For all the novices, you will understand my joy at turning out this pic!! Ayutthaya… as per the other pics in my portfolio… can categorically say I am not re-inventing the wheel here… saw something similar like this on a postcard and loved it! So grab the kindness in your soul and please feel free to mockingly praise my naive enjoyment of having managed to do something in Photoshop!!! Sometimes photography is about ego… this time it’s just about feeling bloody pleased that I got past File… Open!!!

    it was a complicated process involving lots of shiraz….. i don’t know where the cursing button is on the computer… hehehhe. seriously. I selected the face using the pencil tool. then after that i got lost. i think it involved editing the paths options and colours… once i work it out again and have it down pat i’ll happily help anyone. if there are any photoshop masters out there who view this please jump in!!

    Hi khosie,
    I love what you’ve done with this image. There’s a postcard seller around the Khao Sarn Road district in Bangkok that does similar work…ie: desaturating the background, then highlighting significant items like monks robes, or a temple etc…wonder if this is who you saw?

    also for an easier method without using the pen tool, simply paint the colour in using airbrush and set it to soft light.
