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!

    This has such character, like wisdom and expression. Beautiful image.

  • LOL I was the otherside of the cart and spotted him and thought I have to get a shot of him!!! Hannah and I frog marched around the front of the little procession and I waited for him to walk past! First time I have had teh guts to do this! and I did several times today! Hannah is such a sport following me like a little sheep!
