I was looking into my files when I realized that I still have a photo of Shazel that I have not processed yet. I gave the photo a different treatment... It is more of an experimental processing... I played around with the channels again and this time used painting in the process... I also sharpened the photo but not too much... maybe too unrealistic for a portrait thats why I also tagged it as Artwok.. but still I like it... I hope you like it too...

Hi Arman
Fantastic picture , the B&W is brilliant on this with great contrasting shades, fantastic use of light and the focus on the eyes of this portrait shot is superb. TFS

Hi good shot. Excellent sharpness well captured.

Hi mate

This is a hard one for me to critique because - as you know - I personally don't like the processing/ smoothing of skin textures.

What I find intriguing about this shot though is that, while some areas of her face are very smooth, others are beautifully detailed still: her eyes, eyebrows, and the skin just below her eyes, as examples.

Do I like it ... hmmm ... but it is beautifully done, and the base shot appears to be clear and sharp - and of course your model is beautiful.

Yes, very artistic. I like to see work of this quality because it shows what is possible with a good image. I personally think that the textures are beautiful. The headscarf and the lips are amazing, I understand that some prefer a more 'natural' finish, but this clearly demonstrates how accessible and effective digital finishing techniques are. I would be proud if I had managed to achieve anything half as good as this. Well done Arman.

I certainly like it. Very much.
Fantastic detail and use of light.

Hi Arman..very intense effect...you have great technique. Nice work.
