One portrait in two different looks. Subject is my wonderful daughter, Sara. Color portrait is processed in Photoshop Elements with one layer of Gaussian blur overlaid over original after it was adjusted for levels. B/w is just the color photo transformed to b/w. I used natural window light. Thanks, Sara!!
