Gerry, I like where you are going with that. IMO now that you have dropped back the colour saturation and tone, the image looks a bit flat. Some more contrast etc to acheive depth and texture, especially in the man's face would make a great difference.

Nice effect, Gerry. I left a little more color but gave him a slightly more weathered look.

Re: is this ok?

yup, this is always interesting. the 'dragan' look does this quite dramatically. there are some good dodge and burn ones and paint with light ones also.

superkoax, would you mind if i used this image on another site, specifically the filterforge.com site? i'm making filters there and one of the filters i'm currently working on is a portrait and luminosity masking filter. your picture here is a good one to practice one and sometimes i like to display my results over there.

here's an example of one:

Like Craig said, this portrait is a perfect candidate for the Dragan effect.

Hi Folks, I’ve just found your site and finding it fascinating. I really like the “Dragan effect” how do you achieve that and can I download a h-res image to give my option on it?.
