My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

Hello Everybody,
I found the dragan effect to be great using in portraits to give it a nice antique and mysterious effect. I've attached my try. Though the pic is small, it gives an idea about the effect. Please give your opinions. Thanks!

As far as being able to see on this real small image I do like what I see, especially this golden skin tone

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

Very nice! It has a 'mythical' quality about it. As if I'm looking at an image of a bust of an ancient Greek hero, like Achilles or Hector, or an Olympian god, or some such.
But I would presume it's rather limited in application. To males. I can't see it being very flattering to female heads. Or have you tried that already?

Anyway, I like the Suryapuranik's result more...

Hi Pelez, No I've not used any action or automated script, all work is manual.

Thanks Dislyda, Using the channel as a new layer above the original (blue channel in this case), some curves adj. to boost the contrast, playing with the color balance. Also, HP filter to exaggerate the fine details of face.
