Previous note: Quite hard picture for workshop IMHO, at least not really my style of picture :o). Challenge accepted just for fun ;)

My Workshop (In Photoshop):
- Correction of some darker spots in the skin with clone tool.
- Used Optikverve Labs - Still Life filter with contrast 50, warm 50 and a picker color (that dark pink).
- Added 20% of noise
- Resized picture
- Added a frame and applied a smudge stick on it
- Title for the picture: Concentration. Why ? Cause i play bowling and those little phones it's what i use to concentrate myself

Hope you enjoy,
Regards from Portugal, António

Just a simple conversion to B&W (with Optikverve Labs, using the contrast effect) and a larger frame added. I think a large frame work better with this kind of pictures.

Hope you enjoy

Trying to give more life to the picture:

- Clone tool: removed all the dark spots and the top right reflection
- Adjust aulo levels
- Adjust auto contrast
- Adjust auto colors and then faded by 50%
- Increased saturation on blues by 20%
- Applied neatimage with a auto profile
- Added a frame

Hope you like it,

Trying to give a more powerfull message to the picture:
- Crop some water
- Applied clarify 3x at 5%
- Converted to B&W except the lighthouse
- Aplied Neatimage to reduce the noise created by clarify.
- Framed

Well to my eyes this picture lacked a little of everything so:

Auto Levels
Auto Contrast
Auto Colors
Adjusted Curves
Cloned a strange halo around the horses and some dark spots on the picture
Added a frame
