    Brutal honesty is appreciated. Just wondering if there is anyone out there that appreciates this look. Not sure how they would look printed.

    I'd say that one is the most subtle.

    Yea, the eyes were really the only thing I liked about 2. I like the technique on some photos I have seen as well. The lucisart program does a good job as well. I just don't have the coin to spend on a niche that might not sell.

    Personally, I don't care for that look at all.

    I wouldn't say this if you hadn't asked for brutal honesty. In fact, I'll begin with a compliment, as I do like what your attempting to do. However, I was surprised to see these were taken with a D300. The amount of noise is alarming -- I thought you were using a camera with a tiny sensor until I saw the D300 in your signature and was going to recommend you invest in an entry level DSLR.

    I'm assuming that your post processing is giving the impression that these were shot with a point-and-shoot. Or, possibly they were way underexposed and you lightened them?

    I hope this is helpful.

    The extra sharpening added quite a bit of noise.

    Does nothing for me.

    Looks like a defective camera captured them. As stated before, the noise kills them.

    IMO, #1 looks the best because it's closest to being somewhat realistic.
