I just discovered Topaz Adjust (a plugin for Photoshop) and decided to learn my way around it using some pics from my old folders – plugins are fun and as I found out – make things so much easier!!
I had always liked this shot but felt it was a bit soft around the edges and so didn’t match his expression.
It still is quite soft and will remain a moment missed – but I do quite like it enough now to post it here.

Topaz Adjust and then into CS3 for B&W conversion.
