Re: Different style ideas for this shot?

Maybe the OP meant the "GQ" look... (If that is still around?)

If not then long eyelashes and black lipstick would not be out of line... Maybe Peter_S is on track then..

I sort of thought it meant something outrageous like the stuff that would not be worn on the street except by the young and brave, If it looks like the example below then I might have to revamp my submission! Naw, on second thought, I would rather just forget it!

For a man it might look like this?

Thanks all for the examples. Yes I was thinking like something in "GQ" for lack of a better term.

I messed with a levels adjustment layer, shadow highlight, a bit of skin smoothing and virtual photographer (fall colours)

Or what about a B&W version.

I think Alison's BW is the best way to go, in square format even better. I removed the hair sticking out from his cheek, removed the makeup, changed the jacket color to balance with his skin tone and a few other bits.

Thanks Mining and Granny - I used a B&W adjustment layer in PS3.

Re: Different style ideas for this shot?

Pete, welcome to RetouchPRO

A very nice image to work on - although, in future, you could remember to post the original as well as your retouched version. That way we could have a few more alternatives.

I didn't change too much:
1) Changed the background lighting;
2) Cropped to put the features on the "golden mean";
3) Enhanced lights and shadows;
4) Cleaned up the colours;
5) Toned down the tie

and

6) Fixed the ruffled suit behind the neck and shoulders (folks fix the faces but forget the clothes )

Did a sepia-ish version too.

Thumbs up Re: Different style ideas for this shot?

Very nice.

Thank you all. I will be sure to post a full size next time!

It's interesting seeing all the interpretations of the same image.
