cool effect.

my immediate thought is to desaturate it to give a silver light outline.

Of course!!! I didnt like the strong light through his ears. Was looking all around the forest, didnt see the trees. Thanks for pointing it out.

Hmmm....I like the first one but could do without the pin points for the eyes...they look creepy.

Well, Ive heard weird and creepy used. Funny thing -- that was my intent. I wanted something more than a straightforward silhouette. Those little pinpoints were the hardest to achieve along with the lightened whites of the eyes. Had I gone lighter with those whites he ended up looking like Al Jolson. Then it goes from creepy and weird to just plain funny.

Bynx, I meant no offense at all by using the W word. I actually like it, it kinda reminds me of a werewolf. As usual, you're thinking outside the box has resulted in a "different" photo. I enjoy looking at the vast majority of your creations..
