Totally agree, great shot, but that soft effect is magnificent.

As asked by the previous member, could you please share with us how you got such a superb effect?

this was just done by using a soft lighting filter called midnight sepia, then I just desaturated it and played with levels. He did have highlights around the hair so that helped

Be careful desaturating images to achieve b/w because when printed blotches of color will sometimes appear in the blacks.

cool diffusion effect

i love how the eyes are so dominating over the image. great capture of a fantastic expression. b&w conversion and diffusion effect really suit the shot

nice work
