Today was the Torremendo, (Spain) Annual Fiesta, celebrating their Saints day, where 2 Oxen pull a cart carrrying a statue of Jesus around the town and horse riders and pedestrians proceed and follow. Last year I rode, but decided I would snap some photos this time. This elderly man had a wonderful character visage, so I plucked up the courage to snap a shot! He was just a follower. The day was blazing hot, so he must have been melting in his coat and hat.
This is the first time I have managed to capture an older person to apply this effect to and I am quite pleased with the result!
I have removed the background as it was full of people and was messy.
2 hours worth of editing in PSP, including manually adding the Dragan effect!
