Good stuff

(ps, hints for bigger version )

Oh yeah, when you say colour corrected are you talking about cuvres? I haven't found a tutorial that tells you the 'technically' correct way of doing this, I'm doing it by eye at the moment (with varied results!!! )
If someone recommends a good one or you find one on your own, I'd be interested.

Re: More stylized

In GIMP, I used (on duplicate layer) the dark 1 gradient and set to screen to enhance the separation (contrast) betweet light and shadow on the face. I then flattened and dupped and ran a Contrast mask to open up the shadow details copying the base layer to the Top and set to lighten. Flattened and did a few other things (mainly for cleanup).

The few other things: Dup (3 layers) ACE, Grain Extract Overlay, merge down, Overlay with adjusted Opacity and erase throughs (for selective noise reduction; it's a GIMP thing). I also desaturated a bit.

Re: More stylized

Here's my version. MAN!!! Looooove working with photos!!!!!!!!!
This guy looks completely different to the original, but that's just my taste...He now looks like he is modelling versus guy next door. Oh and B&W: much more stylish. Enjoy.

Re: More stylized

OMG, just read the entire thread again, nearly died when I read "self portrait"...hope you didn't mind me having a go and calling the subject 'guy next door'...The point is you have a good face for retouching, not that you need retouching...I'll just shut up now

Re: More stylized

Lmao, no problem

Like I said I know I'm no model but I wasn't trying for perfection or I would have at least had a shave! lol
I was trying to get a gritty, relatively 'truthful' picture. Hey you gotta make the best of what you got!!
