Hi guys,

Below is a link to the PSD so you can have a play :-)

DivShare File - Waiting.psd

I must admit that I was probably wrong to describe the look I was after 'grunge' as what others have done is much closer to 'grunge' than my image!

Anyway, hope you like the psd!

Perhaps what you did was not really "grunge", it is nevertheless very nice.

Thanks for sharing the original, I didn't think it would be that big (downloading it ATM).

After re-evaluating your "look" I have come to the conclusion that what you might have been after is your own interpretation of a combo of the "looks" made famous by some other, to remain un-named, Photographers..

For my interpretation I used an action from "Richard Houtby" along with some blending modes and selective sharpening

lol, your diplomatic comment's are duly noted :-O).

I've been inspired by numerous photographers which have had a strong influence on my style. However, I'm very happy with look I've developed as it suits my photographic projects.

I'm going to have a good look at your mod now.

Nice edits, slightly too much saturation for my tastes but still great stuff :-)

Hi, it looks as though you've been working the contrast a lot, which has resulted in an over saturated image, especially in the reds.

Also, i think the mask / vignette could do with a touch of work as the shadows don't match up with the natural light.

Always interesting to see a different take on things though
