    WOW!!!!!! stunning details… did you give it some kind of treatment?

  • Thanks Gompo.

    This is an enlargement of a full face portrait with some rather radical movements of the colour sliders in Channel Mixer (after conversion to B&W). A high pass filter was applied, a grain layer and curve adjustments using highlight and shadow masks. Gradient masks were applied to a number of curve layers to get the tonality and balance right. Finally, the eye was whitened and the layer opacity’s tweaked for the final effect.
    I lighten up all my RB material with a simple Levels adjustment as the shadows seem to get blocked up on this site.

    The effect is rather freaky

    Stunning details.

  • Thank you Elox.

    I’m amazed at the detail given how little of the original shot was used.

    For the geeks, it was captured with a Nikon D200, Nikkor 18-200 lens.

    wow…a very strong pic … it.

  • Thank you Dave. This treatment started as adventure that, thankfully, had a destination.
