Strong processing, but it works well in this case. What a fabulous face!

I think the only tiny thing I'd say is to tone down the white of the closest eye a fraction. And perhaps the brightness of the gold button on the hat. Not a lot, but those are the first two things my own eyes went to when I looked at it.

Hope you don't mind me saying that.

Thanks Tanya. Thought I'd try an alternative ( Dragan effect ) processing as the pic seemed to cry out for either mono or something different. Agree with your comments and I'm grateful for them. First time I've tried this so any comments are welcome. Cheers

If it helps, the only time I tried following a Dragan-effect tutorial, I must have done something wrong somewhere along the line, because it didn't look anywhere near as good as this! For a first go, really well done Smile

Now, though, I'm wondering what a mono conversion would look like after the Dragan-effect ... ?? Wink

>Tanya. Nudge nudge, wink wink. Tried this when first processed so haven't done a lot to it other than conversion.209017_1462465309.jpg

Nice! I like the lighting and the detail. Great expression and a fine candid


Quote:"Dragan" effect.
- what is this?

Thanks Miguel. Check out Andrjez Dragan on web. Lots of examples of his work.

Like this a lot, the subject is full of character and the processing adds to the interest

Thanks David. Have a good weekend while the weather is set to be half-decent!
