Hi guys,

I've just finished working on this shot of guy I met in the street. I liked the subject so spent longer processing the image to create a painterly effect.

Any comments are more than welcome.



Thanks,

Matt

Great shot all about texture. Too bad he didnt have his eyes open and smoking a cigarette since he obviously smokes a lot.

Thanks Bynx. I actually have a shot where the subjets eyes are open, but i felt that this version was more emotive. I may re-process a version with eyes open.

Well your focus and lighting are excellent. Just wish his eyes were open. Like to see the cigarette too but its your picture.

Eye's open would have added to it, but the lighting and detail on the skin are excellent.

You have mastered a great and unique style.
