I decided that I probably stretched out the trivia posts as much as I can and since I haven't shown you a before and after recently of one of my photo edits, I thought that would be a good choice for today.
This is what I started with.
MorgueFile and did an extraction on it.
Here's what I ended up with.
I used a couple different filters and played around with blending modes a bit to make it look more like a painting than a photo.
Hope everyone is ready for Christmas or at least finding lots of time to do all the last minute things.
