    To me it just looks very oversharpened. Not a fan. Just my .02 though. I think your previous work is better.

    Hmm. I have to agree on the top one, the sharpening is a bit much... but there is more going on here than just sharpening, notably a softening of shadows, and slight change of colors.

    Strange as it is to critique my own work, I think the bottom one pulls it off well while the top one would've been better soft.

    Oh, and I have it unedited here:

    The processing isn't terrible...but I think it needs a stronger photo to really pull it off.

    OK I can understand where you're coming from.

    Here is a third one. This time, no sharpening tool used, but still a similar effect:

    new one is way closer to what i'd like in the end.

    stay on that path!

    I like the newer one best.

    How exactly did you accomplish that effect?

    It's a combination of effects I've picked up off of the internets.

    First, I create a new layer and then change the blending mode to soft or hard light. Then, I use a High Pass filter on the top image, but from there it depends on the image. Sometimes I'll use the Unsharp Mask, other times I'll use the Shadow/Highlight tool.

    i really like the last one. my only gripe is the "glow." I think if you could mask out the glow from around her this one would be really nice.

    personally, i think these need a slight vignette and maybe a cooler/bluer look.

    i took a quick stab at it, I hope you don't mind...

    this may not be at all what you were going for, but i didn't feel like I could explain what i was thinking.
