There have been so many great versions of this picture that I hate to enter mine.

PSP - desaturated and did find edges

One more sketch and I will try to get on another track. Used PI colored pen and desaturated. (I really must get back to my laptop and PhotoShop - but some times I just like what PI does.)

Bubba: Thanks for reminding me in this (and other recent pics) how effective the PI Colored Pencil effect can be.

Mig: Nice facelift; very subtle. She's most certainly earned a little downtime.

First of all - I changed my name! coughlin47 didn't seem friendly enough for this site....so, now I am BillC.
Wasn't sure what effect I was looking for after viewing all of the other great submissions! I wanted to keep detail in the face and yet have a bit of 'dramatic' lighting.

GoldCoin, Sheryl, and Phillis - Thank you very much for the kind words - you sure make a 'newbie' feel welcome. I like to 'experiment' a lot in PhotoShop and most of my 'experiments' end up in the trash heap. Sometimes I get lucky and end up acceptable results. On this particular 'experiment' I ended up with quite a few layers with different blend modes. I'll go back and see if I can recreate it, and write down the steps! (really, I'm not being evasive and not wanting to share - its just that I didn't write down the steps!)..after all, these forums are all about sharing! I guess I didn't expect feedback on it!
I know that:
Convert to BW using your favorite method

I painted back some color in the face using history brush (with only about a 10 percent opacity - maybe went over 2 times)

Duplicated the background layer and added a huge gaussian blur (something like a radius of 70)...this layer eventually ended up on the top with a blend mode of Multiply
I also had several other layers with different blend modes.... So - I guess I better go back to the digital darkroom and see if I can recreate the 'experiment'.
Thanks again for the feedback.
Bill C
