I have been playing around for a while to make a half photo half painting image with an old dated feeling,I changed the image into hdr and oversharpened and subdued some of the stronger colours,I would appreciate your critiques.

Hi Jimmy,

As explained in my critique I was very curious to see how this would look in B&W. I think the version you have published is better becasue of the striking red tones but I think the B&W has a character of its own as well. I hope you dont mind!
