This one only got a handful of views so is probably safe to post without others knowing who shot it... I wanted to do my Fly pic but I thought it might be a bit too recognizable. Hard to decide. REALLY hard to decide.

Processing steps: Major crop to isolate the face (almost a full body shot in the original

used about three layers using the hue/saturation tool to desaturate and oversaturate mostly using the reds and yellows. I posted the steps a long time ago in a much ignored thread, but can't seem to find it. I believe it was:

desaturate bottom layer, oversaturate reds in layer above, and in the top layer desaturate yellows and reds.

added a bit of sharpening and the border and boom - done.

for more information on processing see this thread.

Post challenge - thanks for the comments, I will return them in the next few days. I have used the check box to make sure I don't forget. Pardon the delay.

I like the tones and semi-desaturation.
Think it helps with the girls pose to create the feel of 'anguish'.

Ouch. Perfect angle on this one. It emphasizes her sorrow and shows us why she is crying.
