  • Thank you so much Janie, I am honored to have this featured so quickly! I was worried that it might not get noticed because of the wide angle it doen’t show as well as a thumbnail, thank you so much for discovering this piece! Merry Christmas!!

    Great work ! Love the vintage amber tone . Like light from candle light ,fireplace or mica lamp shade ;-) I see Peechez is going incognito ;-) I wondered about that when I read the back of the card ;-) Happy Holidays !

  • Thanks Marv, glad you liked this one, the original was much more of a washed out daylight shot, I really wanted a more dramatic vintage feel, add some warmth to it. The doll was standing on a fireplace mantel, even though some of the many fireplaces in the mansion had electric artificial fires, this one didn’t. One of the many things I love about onOne’s Perfect Effects, so many great processing possibilities!
    Yeah, Peechez is now working as Putterhug, but still goes by Peechez, Putterhug started as a joint venture and kind of took over as her main site, with collaborative works form both of us…confused yet? ;~\ Thanks for stopping by! Happy Holidays to you as well my friend!!

  • Thank you Mary, I’m happy to see this piece featured in the group, truly an honor!! I appreciate the exposure, since this one really doesn’t show well as a thumbnail, the wide angle and distance between the subjects, but I love how this piece turned out, thanks again for the showcase!!
