Women and football (soccer) - Frauen und Fußball

It is fundamentally wrong that women are not interested in football (soccer). However, the interests are different from those of men. Men look at the ball, women on calves and hairstyles.
Es ist grundsätzlich falsch, dass sich Frauen nicht für Fußball interessieren. Die Interessenlage ist jedoch unterschiedlich zu der der Männer. Männer sehen auf den Ball, Frauen auf die Waden und die Frisuren.

#Lightroom: Stylized Techniques for Editing Portraits

Let me start by stating the obvious. Everyone has their own unique preferences regarding post-processing. Just read the comments below a posted image that is somewhat heavy on processing and you will see the variety of opinions out there. Personally, I like creating portraits that look somewhat surreal. I achieve some of this look by lens choice and composition and the rest in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

Tutorials on creating metal type abound online, as do variations on simple liquid effects.

Once you have an idea of how different techniques fit together in a piece, it is fairly easy to combine, say, the process to create metal and the process to create liquid to create something that exists in both sides of the FX map.
