This is a great photo

After explaining yesterday how I was able to create a B&W background in an otherwise colour shot, I just couldn't resist posting this picture.
To get this effect, I "monochromed" the background in Gimp 2.6 as before but this time I also applied a Gaussian Blur (Filters>>Blur>>Gaussian Blur) with horizontal and vertical Blur radii of 250 each.
Finally I went to Filters>>Artistic>>Cartoon and applied the default Mask radius and Percent black to try to produce a 3D effect.
No colour enhancement or changes whatsoever were made to the child's image.
The result is as you see. Looks great as a Desktop Wallpaper.
