It's certainly......interesting! I find the skinny arm on the left and the exaggerated elbow on the right downright funny!

Interesting idea. Not sure I'd show it to the client, but for an attention getting ad it might work well! On the other hand, my wife (not the subject) likes it better than the original. Clever!

You do good work.

BTW, I use the "duplicate layer - Gaussian Blur - mask to erase the blur over the sharp bits (eyes, hair, clothes)" method. I even made an Action to set it up. The ladies love it!
The arm was not stretched. In fact it is at the same level of the original. As she is now much thiner it appears that way. The same applies to the elbow. Have a look at the original.

Has anyone used an external studio strobe-flash with the K10D? I have been using a radio controller to trigger them as they omitted the Flash X Synchro input. Just one more thing. Don't set to X as that forces you to only shoot at 1/180th of a second.
They are pretty cheap and reliable, and work great up to 1/125 in M mode. Any faster and they catch the trailing curtain.

I use an IR trigger as backup but bever needed it so far.

Before I go to sleep, I hope you don't mind. I played with your image a bit. Kind of small to work on but...
I don't mind. This is an outtake from a project that is not finished yet so it is not one of the best from the shoot. It also had no Photoshop except the frame. It is also not properly color corrected because I had the wrong camera profile selected in Lightroom. This photo needed a lot of help. When I reveal the final project it will look much different.

I like what you did with it. The model is actually quite thin, but this image did not show that. I still have three shoots to finish the initial photography, hopefully I get it done soon.

Hmmm.. you're right. Interesting.

I used that method on a photo of my mother-in-law. Now I'm her favorite!
