Thanks to Mugmar for the idea of lighting on this one. I placed a small flashlight behind Darth and shone it on the black background creating a bluish glow to help separate the figure. My faithful 60 watt bulb was shone on the front concentrating on the light sabre beam to try to create a 'glow'. In Photoshop I reduced the shiny sheen on the clothing.

This is same photo that I monkeyed with in Photoshop. I redid the lightsabre 'blade' so it would glow. Also the pushbuttons on his suit now have a glow to them.

I like the concept and what you've done with it. Well done.
