    Greg: I sharpened this just a tad before posting. Please let me know what you think.

    Everyone else: Let em' rip! What do you think?

    I like it! Very clear eyes and great bokeh. He sort of has the "I just woke up and have bed head look and why are you pointing the camera at me?!" look going.

    Even when you fix his hair, he runs his hands through it till it looks nice and messy! :tongue:

    great thread
    nice picture
    love the eyes.... you did well, sir
    the sharpening you did made this image so much better
    your picture is wonderful
    handsome model, of course.... always helps
    but.... digital SLRs don't "see" the world the way our eyes do (or those with 20/20 vision, anyway)
    it takes some "touch" at the computer to approximate what is really "seen."

    if you want to go even "crazier" on the sharpening...
    Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available)

    i used shadows and highlight at 40% for the whole image
    then i used the lasso tool for each eye, individually.... using shadows and highlights at 50% and USM at 80/0.8/2

    then.... i did a USM at 80/0.8/2 for the whole image

    I am going to start batching my files to an ftp server where you can download and PP. If you could just forward them back to me. Thanks!

  6. shane...
    i want you to know that YOU are doing a great job
    and some folks will think that MY sharpening on THIS image was OVER THE TOP

    i didn't do that to make you feel you'd done an INadequate job... because, you hadn't

    the shot is great
    please remember i only try to teach what i've learned RIGHT HERE

    that's really such an incredible thing about THE CAFE
    you see
    you learn
    you do
    you teach someone else

    you'll be showing other folks what can be done

    keep shooting.... post-processing.... and posting
    i can't wait to see more

    Oh! No worries! That's exactly why I look so often for feedback on what I am doing. There are quite a few very talented people on this forum. It's why I am here every day!
