Fantastic photo Craig, the processing adds a real mystique like something out of a C. S. Lewis novel. Excellent work!

I like this postprocessing... can you tell us something about it?
2 Feb 2007 10:33pm
@alberto: Thanks. Naturally, I use Photoshop and ... a very high-quality plug-in NIK Color Efex Pro 2.0. I usually make contrast and color adjustments first to all photos. With this image I next applied a paper tone filter. I followed up with a midnight sepia filter w/adjustments to the brightness control. I then dodged and burned certain parts of the image and de-saturated it slightly. Lastly, I sharpened it to my liking. Hope this helps. Craig
Great processing, and this mood is just horrifying (in a good way). Mysterious and an excellent photo.

Hey Craig. IT's good to catch up on the images ive missed while Ive been away (crazy schedule). Thanks again for the comments my friend. Youve continued to produce insanely good stuff. This is most poetic image. I echo Chris's comments regarding C.S. Lewis! Check your wardrobe mate, who knows where it leads!
