Akvis Sketch Demo

The wife was at work last night so I thought i'd catch up with a little Photoshop wizardry, as per usual I ended up downloading the Akvis sketch plugin for Photoshop and playing around with that instead of doing what I'd started out to do. I think the results are outstanding but you can judge for yourself below:


Oh the power!

Hello, I'm Mark, I'm Trev's friend, and for reasons known only to him, he's given me access to his blog. I promise not to let the power go to my head. If you enjoy Trev's photography, you might also want to take a look at a couple of other photo-blogs: http://photo-geeks.blogspot.com and <shameless-self-promotion>http://markpugh.blogspot.com </shameless-self-promotion>. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


Tonights Work (May be I don't want to do this for a living!)

 The Central Electricity Generating Board (CEGB) was the cornerstone of the British electricity industry for almost 40 years; from 1957, to privatisation in the 1990s. Not sure what year the photo's below are or why the middle one looks like he was once in the village people.

Top One is after, bottom one was the original.
