    I took this shot a few years ago, but never really got it to where I wanted it. I thought I would try a little PS work on it and attempt a grunge layer. Let me know what you think!

    Thanks Corry! I am not to sure how well I did at the grunge process and thought I would see what others thought. Thanks for letting me know.

    Wow... if I had to describe any photo as "strong", this would be it!

    Nice work, I like this. It almost feels like a painting.

    pm63, LuckyStarPhotography, and Tiberius, I greatly appreciate your comments. When I get any feed back positive :thumbup: or negative :thumbdown: from my peers it helps me know if i am heading in the right direction. Thank you.

    The grunge work along with the shot looks very good.

    Hey, the effect is really cool although I think it might be a tad bit over-stated over the model. I would like to see just him a bit clearer/cleaner/sharper - might help the image "pop" a bit.

    Thanks for the comments, I have been working with the image and trying to find a good mix of what you suggested. I'll post one up for you to see when I get it right.
