CJ - do you have that pic of the basketball player in a higher resolution?

megl,

I really like that look, those tones.

I saw your post on Dpreview also -- other than using Painting with Light techniques for highlights and shadows, you didn't list any steps there either. I hope you'll be willing to share how you created that skin-tone. (I've been experimenting with Apply Image/Calc on channels, but haven't made it yet.)

Thanks all!!!

CJ - don't worry, I will write an in depth tutorial. It's just that I'm incredibly busy until Christmas and it will take some time to write, since no one will benefit from me outlining a few steps (especially since the method is somewhat different from image to image). Maybe I'll find some time during the holidays.

I'm not saying that I'm totally there, but I think I managed to get most of the way and it took quite a while and MANY hours of experimentation and I certainly wanna pass on what I've learned so others can benefit.

I'm still learning, so suggestions/comments are welcome!!!

Take all the time you need, and all the time you want -- if you are willing to share what you have learned via your own hours of practice and trial, I will consider myself lucky.

After reading some of your/others posts at DPreview, I can see that you've been working on this for a while, and I hope we all understand that each image will require artistic adjustment rather than a simple applied action. I am not an artist, and will leave hand-work adjustments to those with an artistic eye and skills to do the work. I probably won't even have a use for this technique, but there will be some career artists who would love to add to their bag of skills. I DO like to try my hand at different techniques, and enjoy getting a bit closer to "the look" that the technique is meant to create, but find I often fall short since there is usually some artistic hand-work required. I realized many years ago that I am usually the audience rather than the performer, and I enjoy cheering for a good performance.

You've given a good performance, megl.

So many good points in that thread! That's my kind of attitude!!! Thanks again!

I've corrected some minor details, so here's a new version:

Don't quite know if it's silver, but this version is kind of "light" like.
