Just a quickie, a hint of colour and a little smoothing, maybe levels and curves too
hmmm, misread the mandate regarding the hair and the object, never mind

Way overdone, but...

Higher quality here.

I couldn't get rid of all the facial hair, though

Re: hey everyone...I propose a challenge

Okay, I'll bite and give it a 10min run.

First off - men should not have highly polished skin, imo. Some pore-structure and a bit of sharpening of stubs etc. look better - to me, at least.

Second.. A lot more could be done here. Most notably the annoying hotspots in the photo. Also - it's a shame about the cut off ear.

Re: hey everyone...I propose a challenge

5 min of clone, then did like 20 min of d&b, then i did 2 color mode curves and 2 contrast curves. I was trying this very high contrast technique a friend taught me recently but it works better on images that start out with natural color. it's blotchy and all so beleive me i know it;s far from done!

Errr... That's not quite what I meant about the cut off ear. I just meant that it was cut off in the photo :-) English is not my first language.
