When I saw this one, I thought it begged to be a low-key portrait. This can’t compare to Phyllis’ rendition, but I didn’t want to steal her techniques (at least not on this one). I tried a lot of things, including advanced blending, which might prove useful in the right person’s hands. Nothing worked really well. The background layer was duplicated twice, and the multiply blending mode was used at 100%, and 32%. The minimum filter was used at 1 pixel radius. A higher radius would have helped the scratches more, but I wasn’t willing to let the facial features suffer because of that. I think the low-key effect works very well with this portrait, and as luck would have it, it also helped quite a bit with the scratches. I think I’ll try this again, using techniques that were not allowed on this challenge, because I think it’s a great portrait. I’m hoping to see other people’s techniques on this one, since I was pretty well stumped.

Good job, Ed.
Right choice in preserving the facial features.

Thats what I was coming up against also. If I got rid of the blemishes I would loose his face. My second one was from Phylisses tech changed a little so I really cant take credit, she pointed us all in the right direction. Boy I love learning.

Ed, this was similar to a version I was going with, but I decided to take it further. As you saw, it resulted in blow out. I should have stayed with texture. You made the right choice.

Ed, job turned out very nice.
