I liked this photo and thought I would give it a try. Here are the steps I took: Adjusted levels, Desaturated, Clone, burn, dodge. Manually adjusted levels and curves. Duplicated layer and colored in. Cloned left arm for right arm. Duplicated color layer again and applied gaussian blur. Adjusted level to bring out darker edges. Applied layer on top of B&W layer using Lighten at 75%. Merged both layers.
