Lots of Post on this one. slight rotation to straighten, used the Dragonizer action to grunge it up, follwed by cloning out of a Tim Hortons cup and some distractions on the background wundow. Lots of dodge and burning, som contrast lightness adjustments and various other tweaks to fine tune.

good capture. the "edgy" post-processing, for lack of a better way to describe it, works well here.

Good shot of the man, but the dog is virtually invisible, unfortunately. I think we needed either not to have the dog in the picture at all (not really an option under the circumstances, I guess), or to be able to see him much better.

Great processing job. It really brings out the surrounding textures.

strong work; colors, composition, & processing is great-all the textures are palpable! subject is compelling also

Nice shot. The post processing gives the mans head a wonderful sense of an old book print crossed with perhaps a god from the renaissance art period. However it appears to (on my monitor) have really adversely effected the dark elements of the image (especially his fleece) and the dogs coat

Intriguing image though

Post processing totally gratuitous and makes the texture of the clothes look awful. The dog doesn't work in the shot at all as you can't see it's face. Composition feels unbalanced, too much negative space in top left of frame. Skin tones too purple. Doorframe growing out of man's head.
