adamus sharpening tip on this one. Use the sharpen filter 2x after resizing to 1300 pixels on the long side. Then resize to 720 pixels.

I wanted a sad feel to the photo, so I used darker tones when processing. Hopefully it isn't too yellow--looks good on my home display, not as good on my work one.

Such and incredible image, and fantastic sharpness, and thank you for posting how you did the sharpening. Ever since I read it a month ago, I have been using it for many of my images, and I am ecstatic with the results.

wonderful textures. Definitely an emotive shot - as if you can see her looking into the past.

very cool, I like this but it strikes me that a layer or something has taken some of the life out of it.

These sorts of big cat portraits are seldom as effective as this one.
