Whatever you want. This is for you guys to practice on, if you want. Its basically straight out of the camera and is, probably, a little different then the usual. Plus it has some nice challenges like the acne.

I've already edited & finished all my shots from this session. This is an outtake that I won't be using... so go crazy with it!

It's no secret (as they all say ).

I did a modest Lucis Art Sculpture on selected parts of the image (midtones), and lots of contrast adjustments on selected parts of the image. I think most people try different filters and adjustments on the whole picture all the time. It's important to pay attention to different parts of the image and try to visualize what is needed to be done. I also switch between RGB and LAB mode. I find LAB mode better when I want to create strong colors.

By the way.. I'm not sure you would need Lucis. There are tutorials on how to achieve simillar effects with free tools and Photoshop filters. One thing about Lucis if you have it: it's sooo sensitive. Be sure to remove all dust and imperfections on parts you want to modify with Lucis (Noise Ninja/NetImage/Noise Reduction in Photoshop). Otherwise it will stand out, as you can see on some of the other examples in this thread. Just a note...

Jimmy
