    "Split toned" ... ?
    You selectively desaturated ... no? You did some selective colouring with previously desaturated colours? Is that it? (The not all grey cuffs make me think... as does the part around his nose)

    An interesting method, certainly not flattering to most. Male faces might still deal with this well - women might not be overly happy with it!?!? (A thought plus question to myself, this one is).

    yes, this was from a black and white, then i applied one tone to his skin and another to everything else.

    this was definatly not supposed to be flattering, in fact this guys face was not nearly that worn, then i added some age with liquify.

    women definatly not happy with this technique. haha, i doubt the guy would be to happy with it either though.

    You did a good job. Only thing that bugs me is his eyes.

    Nice picture. The pose and the perspective is quite good!!!:thumbup:
    But there is one thing that comes to mind. The hand and the ear are truncated.
    Except fot that I do like your pic as well. I`d like your colorstyle, it suits to the person.

    thanks . . . although i'm not sure what i think about the hand and ear being not completely in the frame.

    i'm tempted to say that i want the frame filled, however i've left some space at the top right to lead the viewer on to what he is looking at.

    (thats my story and i'm sticking to it)

    however it was a quick snap at a party i was photographing.
