A bit complex conversion because of experimentation, but basically: Converted from RAW, then tonemapped, to adjust shadow and toning emphasis. That gives a nice "texture, and matching texture, but I took it a bit further, and COI glow multiplied, to select the fisherman, then draganized. Then reduced the effect of that by pasting it over the original conversion again.

I like the shot, but I'm not sure I like the \"look\" of this shot, it's just a touch to "edgy" for me. Just a personal preference thing, I guess.

The aged rocks and aged man. Nice candid.

Brilliant composition and you've captured a great expression. If only the photo quality was better...

I like the initial look and feel, but either it is cropped too much or it just seems over processed.

this is great; I like the post processing with the enhancement of the textures around him

nice photo...but overkilled...in my opinion at least. too much texture. The relationship between the weathered state of the man and the built environment would have sufficed with a smaller correlation. 7

Good candid shot of a time worn angler, you get the feeling that he has sat on the same step for years and years alone with his thoughts and dreams as he catches what will be his dinner

Nicely executed

That's cool how he has the same texture as the stone and the wood. There's a famous photograph this reminds me of. I'll try to remember it and come back and tell you.
