    Framing the frame

    Bored during a sunny cold afternoon when the sun was almost setting; it cast a warm light through the window, such that it really seemed it was summer

    The canvas is weaved from tiny fiber... looks it by trying to sharp the image, it led to some posterization...

    Hi Zephyrise - Sometimes when a shot and its processing shows something undesirable you can remedy matters by exploiting the problem. In this case, if there is posterisation, use it. Here's a version from your image (I hope you don't mind my kidnapping your work).


    Framing the frame

    What I did was take the original, created a second new layer, deliberately enhanced the posterisation to give a lot of flat colour, blurred it slightly and blended it with the original layer via "overlap". (This is a version of the so-called Orton Effect.) Having then flattened the image I used a perspective tool and then cropping to give this result. Total time 5 minutes. (Paint Shop Pro v9)

    What do you think?

    Cheers

    As the picture said to the wall ...

    "First they framed me, and then they hung me"!

    And as the wall replied ...

    "Hang about, are you saying it's a 'put up' job?"

    They tried to hang the hat too, but it got out of it by saying "you stay here - I'll go on ahead"
