    I like this picture, but I don't like it in color. I don't like the way I have it edited...does anyone have any suggestions?

    I like this version better. The escalator was distracting.

    Can we do anything about that lady's crotch/camel toe?? It's distracting me, too.

    Here is my go at it. My thinking was to light the surrounding area and darken the subject to try to show the toughness and darkness of the world he lives in. I'll let you guys tell me if it worked though or whether it is overdone :lol:

    I feel like this is too dark.. His clothes are blending together. I like how one of you cropped it so close. I didn't crop the escalator first because I felt like the lady was more distracting...

    Thank you! Can I ask what all you did? I see the vignette, other than that did you switch it b&w? It looks like you added some kind of texture...

    I opened it in ACR (Adobe Camera RAW), added Fill light, Clarity.

    I then opened it in CS4 and did the conversion to B&W using a B&W adjustment layer. I did some dodging, then added the vignette, did the border and frame.

    I was using a computer at the local junior college, not my image editing workstation at the studio. I would have also used some Topaz Labs software to improve the contrast more had it been available.
