Posted By mrswoolybill : I haven't gone for quite such a contrasty feel as Helen, so this makes an alternative approach. Let me see, what have I done? I reduced Brightness by 4%, increased Contrast by 40% which is way more than I would normally use; I tweaked Midtones in levels, increased Saturation of reds by 15%, which again is higher than I would normally go. Then I did some selective dodging and burning on the coat. Just a very quick job, it cannot have taken more than two minutes.
Posted By Paintman : Levels and curves, plus a little saturation and sharpening.
