My 12 yr old daughter, Tessa

converted to grayscale in adobe camera raw
split toning, curves, brightness

in CS3, added this overlay:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/39110/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_608245.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/39110/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_608245.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

reduced opacity, erased away texture at varying degrees of opacity
I think that I did a color burn blending mode, but it could have been something else. I got caught up and lost track!

filter>distort>diffuse glow
curves adjustment and brightness on just eyes
filter>render>fibers @lowish opacity, erasing most of the effect from the face

Very beautiful. The image you've captured is so delicate... and the delicate lines of the texture bring that out perfectly. I love it!

Stark. Brutal. Honest. Gritty. And VERY human. Amazing capture.

Funny - I was thinking aboutyou and her last night, as I was looking at my son, thinking "what would Erin do?" I love this so much. She has such an expressive mature face, yet her innocence shines through those glorious eyes. Love that overlay. It suits it nicely without ruining the feel of it. Nice!!!
