    Went to a Dickensian Festival today and got lots of shots.

    This guy looked quite eveil and Fagin like so had a go at processing to bring out his characted.

    Added lots of grain and draganized for effect.

    Hope it has worked.

    All the best

    Nice portrait Ray,I liked your pp work :) 
  5. Hey Ray,

    Great work again. Is the halo around the front of the hat and the eye on purpose. I would darken the halo a little bit. Because it is to much attracting your eye to it. But i love the feel of the photo. Adding grain is fun ain't it. Now don't post it in the Nikon forum of dpreview saying it is a D200 shot else you only will make enimies.

    Thanks for sharing Ray.

    Many thanks for the nice coments.

    Vince that halo is not intentional so I must remove.

    Around the eyes it is part of the draganizing process/action.

    However I think the shot is lost.

    Posted in retouching in another forum and the problem of motion blur was spotted and the shot does suffer from that.

    Too slow a speed and too great a telephoto in shooting.

    I am really disappointed as I hoped this would be a shot with character - could have been i think - but for this problem.

    Thanks again and as always for your help.

    best wishes
