I was just wondering what everyone could do with this picture. This is a self portrait, done with an air release on the floor under my foot. I was just "breaking in" a new camera, fuji finepix s7000, it's on loan to me from a friend. I know this isn't a perfect photo to work with but I thought we could have some fun here.

Here's one way... tritone with a bit of noise added... I rather like the composition you came up with. Good shot! :o)

Alright, I'm up for it... Muted and washed out the colors a little. Also tried to clone out some of the glare on the glasses. You did start with a nice composition.

It's tough when you're working on such a small image.

Try this one on for size. It's a bit funky:

OK, can you tell I'm really, REALLY bored? :-) Here's another attempt, B&W this time... Thanks for giving me something to occupy my idle time. ;-)

I did an auto contrast, auto levels, then went to Render>>Lighting Effects and chose the soft omni light, picked a peachy-tan color for the light, centered it on the tip of your nose, tweaked the spread of the light, fiddled with the lighting levels (more metallic, more negative ambiance) until it looked OK to me, then applied USM. :o)

That's a pretty neat trick Laurie. Gives the shot a really nice look. Thanks for sharing your steps.

Thanks... just fiddling around with it. I've said before that I know just enough about PS to be dangerous...everything I have learned has been by the old "ooh, I wonder what that button does" routine! Glad to help out when I can...that is if I remember the steps I used! LOL
