Re: Whats next in this photo?

Well I think your approach is wrong.

I just started on your photo but the basic approach is one to

Do Levels

Next to set up a frequency separation group. This is described elsewhere in this site.

On the texture layer after frequency separation I used the healing brush tool and started from a relatively smooth area of his face. The end result which will take a while is more sharp than using various blur methods.

cupcake, I did what you did....I kept the texture to keep it looking like an old photo....
its a rough picture because of the lighting and dark clothes...
I tried to do the smoothing like philbach did...but I think it looses a bit of the pictures age...
