"L'ami de personne" (the friend of nobody) is sculpture from Erick Dietman. Unfortunatly the picture is partly blurred due to some snow on the front lens of my camera and which I didn't see in the LCD viewfinder and until I've open the file on my computer. But still, I like the picture and I though I should share it.

Post-Processing

Contrast, colour and level post processing:
- Added a level correction on an adjustment layer
- Selected Red channel and set input level to 10-1,00-194
- Selected Green channel and set input level to 14-1,00-188
- Selected Bleu channel and set input level to 5-1,00-187
- Selected RGB channel and set input level to 0-0,87-255 (gamma correction)
- used contrast masking technique explained here

- Added a curves correction on an adjustment layer
- Selected RGB channel set 3 anchors at:
Input: 44 output: 27
Input: 99 output: 117
Input: 195 Output: 229
- Selected Red channel set 3 anchors at:
Input: 51 output: 6
Input: 151 output: 137
Input: 204 Output: 228
- Selected Green channel set 3 anchors at:
Input: 38 output: 31
Input: 125 output: 129
Input: 197 Output: 223
- Selected Blue channel set 2 anchors at:
Input: 22 output: 33
Input: 149 output: 126
- Set layer opacity to 15%

- Added another curves correction on an adjustment layer
- Selected RGB channel set 3 anchors at:
Input: 70 output: 94
Input: 182 output: 211
Input: 218 Output: 240
- Selected Red channel set 3 anchors at:
Input: 76 output: 33
Input: 174 output: 130
Input: 242 Output: 255
- Selected Green channel set 2 anchors at:
Input: 28 output: 51
Input: 127 output: 118
- Selected Blue channel set 3 anchors at:
Input: 35 output: 54
Input: 165 output: 160
Input: 255 output: 188
- Set layer opacity to 15%

Black & white convertion:
- Added a channel mixer on an adjustment layer (placed before the curves layers)
- Ticked Monochrome checkboxe
- Set red channel to -75%
- Set green channel to +25%
- Set Bleu channel to +150%

Resizing and sharpening:
- Reduce image size to 700x525 pixels
- Flatten the layers
- Applied slightly modified Luko's sharpening tricks:
- Applied USM Gain: 18% Radius: 40 pixels Threshold 0
- Applied USM Gain: 400% Radius: 0,3 pixels Threshold 0
- Selected fade in edition menu and set it to darken mode and opacity to 100%
- Applied USM Gain: 400% Radius: 0,3 pixels Threshold 0
- Selected fade in edition menu and set it to lighten mode and opacity to 50%
