The original shot was rather blurred but I liked the portrait.
So I looked for an effect for which sharpness was not important.

I finally used a gradient map, plus some extra elab.

P.S. :
I have used an Adjustment Layer with a gradient Map.
These adjustment layers are simply wonderful.
They create a new layer to which an effect is applied ( a gradient map in my case).
However this layer is dynamic.
If u change the layer from which the adjustment layer has been created the changes are reapplied to the filter of the adjustment layer and u can see the effect in real time.

This is particularly useful : I could work with burn tool brush, sharpen brush tool on the original layer and immediatly see the effect on the gradient map !
