    I like it alot,, a simple shot but has great texture and lighting,, your processing is what made this shot,, without it it wouldnt be the same,,well done

    i'm so curious as to what post-processing you do. mind sharing or is that strictly for the artist to know?

    Yes I used photomatix on this shot with the default settings and used PS afterwards to put the texture on the shot... the texture adds a warmer light to the shot.. some levels curves and contrast and thats about it... I also used the Transform tool to get the baal more into the foreground... I'm in desperate need of a fisheye ;-)

    I like the concept but I think it looks overprocessed to me, the lighting just looks strange and unnatural

    Thank you for the honest critique :) I'll try to reprocess the shot to get some better results :)
