Meet Chris, well dressed, smooth skinned with a sharp sense of humour.....

Weather was over cast but perfect for portraits, being smooth skinned I wanted to roughen him up a little - hope you like it....

C&C Welcome

I think their's great depth in this picture. Nice example of processing too, I always push it too far when trying this type of processing and end up with white edges ... this shot looks spot on. Well done.

Thank you :D

Took me between 2 - 3 hours to get the look I wanted, if I posted the original (Maybe I will) you will see the work gone into it - I'm far from a photoshop expert but I'm very happy with the final result and so is Chris..

Nice capture and processing.

I just don't get the smooth skinned part, unless you added all the stubble in PP. ;)
