A very nice portrait Prabh and mono was definitely the way to go. Thanks for uploading the original as it gives me something to play with.Grin
I felt the original was a little warm and the face under exposed so I have tried to amend in my mod. I converted to mono using the channel mixer, cropped to 10 X 8 and sharpened.
I hope the mod provides a decent alternative.

Hi Prabh, - your V1 is the best of them

You need to look critically at the original first prior to converting. When I look closely at you friends skin tone, - its has a strong green cast, some from reflection from the jacket, some from white balance. I loaded a cropped mod with the tone adjusted to what I though was more natural (not being any kind of expert on Indian skin tones, apart from knowing that green is not a popular one!).

I would lift the catch lights in the eye a little more; lift the eyes detail, - there's a lot there if you use the shadow tool, and then convert. I loaded a warm grey duo toned conversion. I also removed the colour stripes in the painting behind as they distract.



Regards


Willie

You made a good choice to go B&W here and I think v1 is the best choice. The mods are helpful but I still find the picture/bookcase at the back distracting from this strong face and would probably clone it out altogether. Nice capture and a portrait worth a little effort. A
