as suggested I cloned the scales to his nose etc. Now I like the Black and white better than the sepia. Any opinion again.

thanks, I try, wish I had a better version of photoshop though.

The B/W to color are timeconsuming but worth it. It is amazing what actually pops up in an old black and white that you could not see before, they must be inferior to today film. They also seem to come to life. This one below is an example, it's my mum and Dad when they were 18 and dating. Photo taken in England, Portsmouth, I think.







I tried to keep color to a minimal amount.

Good choice.

The black and white definitely gives it a more "primitive" feel which really works with the subject matter.
