How to achieve this postprocessing?

Hi people, i've noticed this picture and am very impressed with the pprocessing and concept and i was wondering if anyone had an ideas on how the pprocessing was done to achieve such an effect. I really love the green cast to it. Do you guys have any suggestions how to approach such an effect?

well, it's hard to say how much of that is post processing and how much actual photo without seeing a comparison image.

you can tint anything. just make a new raster layer and fill with whatever color you wish to make your tint. then use blending modes and lowering of opactity to suit.

that particular shot looks like it might have been taken in the late evening or early night which is part of where you're getting the greenish hue. i forget what florescent lighting does, but that might also be part of it. the high contrast could well just be the dark suit against a light background and may not be photoshopping at all.

what else might have been done i'm not sure.

To me, this effect seems more the girl than the green .

I took a night scene and applied the underwater filter (r0, g193, b177). I also reduced contrast in the red and blue channels and increased it in the green channel. I partially masked out the highlights so the green effect is in the darker tones.

I still had nothing until I added the girl. I'm almost sure that she was a postproduction addition in your example also. However as Craig said, all the effects could be in the original.

wow, fantastic! i'll try them out as soon as i can get my hands freed to do some clicking!

i really figured it was the cast from the flourscent as well....but the way the girl was was obvious there was pprocessing done. i think that's what makes it special

very very insightful! thanks guys!
