Nice attempt David :)
Andrzej Dragan is one of his kind and all of his photos has some mystery and curiosity. I've noticed from his work that he keeps max DOF and low saturated photos
U might like to visit his web site http://andrzejdragan.com/
I like the saturated eyes and darks under his eyes :)

Yes, the title says it all "The Eyes" - very outstanding! Great clarity and perfect details.
Marvelous reflection in them!
Good use of lighting and splendid shallow focusing.

Beautiful eyes and so nice use light...
I admire all who dare to experiment. I don't know about "Dragan Effect", so I appreciate your note.
For me, the result isn't totally conclusive. Your lovely boy seems to have many sooty spots on his face, especially on his front and under his eyes, and an another red's on in the left side of his head.
However, the programm works nicely for his clear blue eyes, this is superbly done.
I like the effect on the eyes but not on the skin

En dehors de quelques détails qui pourraient être amélioré par une meilleure maîtrise de la technique,l'impact de la photo est indéniablement plus fort sur cette photo travaillée.Bravo David pour cet essai qui me parait concluant.Catherine
stop this type of plasticky effect photoshop. it looks stupid!
I have never heard of the 'Dragan effect' but it doesn't work for me. The whites of the eyes are 'too white' I would like to see the original to compare - anyway, its a nice portrait of the young lad and well done for experimenting, we need more on TL

I didn´t know about this Dragant effect...any way your handsome son became too pink in the tonality of skin...with very beautiful eyes.
The close up is very good but the skin look a little strange.
Maybe it is the effect you wanted...
He is too handsome so I like the real tonality.
I always wonder what's behind a smile like that. Great capture and good framing. Well done, tfs.
it works,whether your son agrees, or disagrees, is the real question :-)
I like this effect & need to find out a bit more about it,I'm sure you can play with it depending on the type of image you want to end up with,I find in this case perhaps the skin tone is a little to reddish as well as a part of your sons hair left side.The bright eyes sure go with the cheeky grin:-)
I don't understand the part where you used HDR Tone mapping on a single image I can't get it to work using photomatix,with a single image that is? Could you explain please.
