It's very cool. You are getting more mastery of this action.

I know it's in showcase and this isn't really critique, but I wonder how it would be to have little of her hair showing, and less of the effect there.

My biggest challenge in using actions for artistic effects is controlling how much of the effect ends up where. When I get one that works it is pure luck so I'm not learning from my mistakes, I can't figure out the key to the mystery.

Thank you minnev...a work in progress and I always appreciate constructive comment and other points of view...for this particular image I wanted the eyes to be the focal point, not sure if I accomplished that......

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
