The Foreman

By chase
Originally one of the Steampunks from the Lincoln festival a couple of years back.
Revisiting a few old files with a slightly different method of the light of me having nothing new to offer at the moment Sad
The bg is taken from one of my urbexing days out.

I wanted this to be dark & gritty with a slightly 'over processed' look to it.

Thanks for taking the time to look/comment.

Well worked here Janet, good blending and textures tones/
Just wondering if it is worth darkening down the top of the chair in the background as one seen takes the eye.
just a suggestion
Regards Richard

Could be Richard,the window was just to the right of the chair ( rather mucky) & was the only light source,if I darkened it then maybe that light would be lost.I guess it's a shame the window isn't in the frame Sad

Excellent portraiture - did you blend two images or do a cut out?
So well done it is seamless.

The usual superb quality of image and interesting character study found in so many of your pics. I always love the painting effect you create in your photos and the excellent lighting.

He's a mighty fine looking gent with a twinkle in his eye. Superb processing.
Catching up after a week without pc. Good to see one of yours Janet. Highly accomplished as ever. What's 'urbexing' I wonder??
