    I've wanted to learn how to achieve this effect for a while... Turns out a rainy weekend was just what I needed :) Here's what I came up with. C&C always welcome!

    First off let me say that I like the photo. No doubt about that one. Now time for my beginner question: what "effect" are you referring to? I see that the background has been cut out and the image has been desaturated. Is there something that I'm missing? Please excuse my ignorance if I'm overlooking something obvious.

    Good point... I think I should have said style rather than effect. You're definitely not missing anything. Thanks for your comment! :)

    i think he's asking about the high key-ing effect/style?
