... giving away secrets now are we? Wink

Nicely done mate, might've been tempted to just lift his eyes a fraction ... make them white, but without them glowing. Nice mono though!!!

The vignette adds focus to the subject, a very 'gritty' image.
Lovely image - looks like someone just told him the Stella Artois delivery is delayed... Smile

I keep looking at him, waiting for him to speak.

I wonder what he's about to say and who is going to be on the receiving end. Hmmm, glad it's not me. Love it. helen

quite like the pose and expression on the bokes face - the processing... he looks like he's made from Terra Cotta in a way, ceramic skin.

It's interesting - works better on someone like this rather than a lovely lady Wink

It's not one I'd use, but I look forward to seeing some more to see how it affects other people's skin

Thanks everyone ... Thanks team very shocked as it seems a long time since I posted it.

Your right Ade it does depend on the subject and for the porcelaine skin the larger its viewed the better (the thumb looks very false) in print it really shines.

I will be doing others but the subject has to be right - I have one of another tog from a trip round Leeds I might just have a go at (tho it takes ages) Wink
