    That is one hell of a capture, I love the colours and the sharpness of the beard really gives it a 3d quality! He looks like a wise old sailor!

    thanks for the kind words, Woody....sharpening technique? well, the sharpening technique of my mentor, YOU, of course:biggrin:

    this was shot in JPEG and in camera + 1 sharpening under the optimize image/custom setting, D50.....
    work flow for proofs -> from camera to puter to acdsee and resized to fit screen to pse then -> levels, contrast, color saturation/de-saturations and adjustments then usm per Woody..fact this work flow is basically all your fault
    unfortunitly i'm still one day i'll learn layering, masks, etc...:wink:
    ...I OWE u pal, mucho appreciated
