This is an image of my son converted from colour and with noise added. I'm not sure I can get the eyes right-I think they need to be bolder but I don't want it to look scary.

i love this composition. Maybe burn the eyes in just the tiniest bit? Great shot. =)
Whilst I understand that my mod. will probably be nothing like the effect you were after, I have to agree with Frank re. the composition here.
I've cropped it and adjusted levels and contrast.
I'm still not keen on the tightness at the top and left but that's just my opinion of course.
Hope it's OK.
Thanks for the comments. I wanted an image that didn't look too posed so that you felt as if something was about to happen.
This is a very good shot Mike. The crop is different and I think brave, but it works very well. I love the expression, the fact hes looking down, and seems to be on the way out of the frame, - all well done. Its one of the better portraits of this style Ive seen in a while.
Its almost a high key look, and you can protect the eyes from the effect by using a layer mask to remove any of the brightening effects from them.
In my mod, Ive darkened the eyes only just a little, and cropped a little tighter, retaining the 1982 badge which I assu8me may be significant. The crop is to align his eye onto a third, and enhance the nice diagonal composition.
I darkened the eyes by making a layer copy, changing the mode to multiply, reducing opacity to about 40%, the using a layer mask to make sure the darkening was applied to the eyes only.
I hope you find this helpful,
Thanks for that one Willie, I think I'm going to use that one. The crop's better. I'm going to get canvas prints made of my family and this one's going up on the wall.
