a little before and after..... original...not much is it....as long as it's in focus...
we can do pretty much anything with it (lol)
so i copied the layer and roughly painted the whole background white
added this really gorgeous texture from Shadowhouse (Jerry Jones) aka Skeletal Mess on Flickr
i don't remember the exact formula here...after i cropped, my usual procedure is overlay and multiply, which often has to be brought down to about 50% opacity....there you have it!
