    Wow 6 hours on this image. Once I had basic post done I decided to give that channel mixer BNW conversion another try and hence hours added on as I blended multiple BnW layers to get the exact balacne of what I was looking for. In the end I'm really pleased with my 2nd attempt. I learned this technique from Vincent Verscae at Kelby Training ( www.flickr.com/photos/vincentversace/ ).

    Once I blended my core BNW mix I then used NIK Silver EFX 2 to add additional layers for blending.

    The thing pissing me off is the hatchet job I had to do to cover the breasts. Due to my day job I need to be pretty conservative with my artistic attempts, but now I know how these artists feel being censored..its not as good. Granted my ps skills maybe are the issue but I really worked at the strategic hair placement but just couldn't make it perfect because the image wasn't that way to begin with.

      I like what you've done here Ed. The lighting gives the model's skin-tone a sort of a silver-tone, which makes it even more enticing. I thought that you did a nice job on being tasteful & discrete too. I like the tatoos, btw!

      Nicely done, as always :-)

      Nice comments. KelbyTraining.com is definitely a site worth checking out and subscribing to if you can, it is expensive though, but full of invaluable information. I share your sentiments about censorship and imagination.

      You did an excellent job lighting the model and framing the photograph.
