Really like the crop and processing.
It could represent the good and the bad side...or even twins with a twist.

Excellent result Smile

Not much to share really! The photo is a section of a portrait (of my son) that is elsewhere in my portfolio . It was a b/W conversion with quite a bit of sharpening and some local contrast enhancement. The face was then sliced in half and one half used to mirror the other. Then a bit more contrast enhancement to the eyes and some 'burning' to hide the join etc.

Hi John,

Much appreciated - I like the 'genuine' traditional black and white look you have created. Many b/w images lack tonal impact but this one gets my vote.

Many thanks,

Interesting and great quality - this got me thinking as to what it would have been like if hadn't been a reflection of the same half of face but the left and right halves. Would it look like two different people?
