Sadly, this picture is not the greatest, but I did think this was an extremely cool veil. This was part of my first experiment with Jacquard’s acid dyes, and I love the deep richness of the black.

I can’t tell you how frustrated I am with Photoshop Elements. I bought it specifically for the Magic Extractor tool — so I could float veil pictures on a solid background– only to find that (a) it’s not too smart unless the background is a vast contrast to the foreground, and (b) it’s incredibly, incredibly slow on my Mac Mini. I have to wait several minutes just to find out that it did very poorly. Sigh.
