Yes, it's nice in b&w !

Do you have some more ground in your shot ? I think it would be nice to see some more to betterbalance the composition.

He was on top of a stack of hay, hanging his head over the edge. In my hurry to snap the picture I cut off his ears and part of his face. Sergio, you do great compositions, how would you crop it?

Well, thanx for the compliments Imkayd1, but I don't know if u will like this or not.

However, here's my try at cropping it ( beside some dodge tool brushstrokes torevealmore details on the hairs and restoring and sharpening the eyes ).

And here's another Xtreme Modification !

It has been created this way :

Level 0 :

- the bw image

Level 1 :

- Fill Adjustment Layer with Thresold.

In order to get the most details from the Thresold I worked this way :

- I selected a medium value so that most of the hair was visible

- I then went back to Layer 0 with dodge and burn brush tools in order to highlight or darken details that were missing or unwantedly appering. The beauty of the Fill Adjustment Layer is that you are able to see in "real time" what is going to happen in the Thresold filter when you edit the layer0 below !

Level 3:

-Bucket fill withorange color

- Blend mode set to multiply
