OK..Ive been playing around with an old file, I'm trying to perfect a look for an upcoming project. I know not everyone will like the style, but want a Gothic almost ghostley feel wiith a cold look, ironically the end project wont be portrait or glamour, but chose the base image as I felt it had a similar atmosphere to what I was looking for.
I really would like suggestions.. I dont normally enable mods but I will do here just for fun. But I stress its a cold (cross processed) look I'm after to create atmosphere.

Posted By TanyaH : I played with the colour balance (yellow/blue in the shadows and highlights); added a diffuse glow, a bit of HDR toning on a separate duplicated image layer and brought it back into the original image, and then played with the opacity (26%) and blending mode (hard light) of that HDR toned layer. A final further adjustment to the colour balance and this is my played with result.
