Nar, that's pleading poverty. A superpower I have in spades 😁

Liking yours Paul. Not sure what I am going to do. Can't seem to visualise time travel or faster than light as a still image ;)

I was trying to make me  look like the HG Wells cover updated but didn`t have a bowler hat. Of course if I had taken both images uses with the same lighting it would have been a lot easier but I had my xt10 in spot meter mode which read the wall different to my face and made my work much harder in the time I had. Good using the mobile phone fuji app to take the shot of me mobile in my hand though . Had to be a contortionist to minimise PS work though. Seemed easier in my head than in practice  :uglystupid2:

Well, this was a disaster, but at least I gave it a try and now you all have an idea what I look like as well, unfortunately, I could not find a model!

Working on my editing today (after chores). Unable at this stage to guarantee a non disaster.

Good grief, cutting stuff out is hard graft - On1 managed most of the donkey work, but I had to resort to fine tuning a fair few bits in Topaz Remask. Stuck it all together in Affinity Photo.

I'm afraid I had the same idea as Simon regarding X-Ray Vision.



The image I used is of a female in a visual advert for underwear, I noticed, as I walked through Grand Central. All I needed then was a building to put the model in.  :P
