Indulgent

2010.10.27

Somedays, I just feel the need to self-indulge.

original photo by Cristina

post-processing, sharpening, tonal correction, teeth whitening and all round general de-uglifying by myself.

... hopefully, I'll get better at this pretty soon.


Tuscany, Italy. September 2010.

????? You don't have to be indulgent with yourself, as you are a splendid man ;-) and I was very inspired by you.
Love your editing. You always make me smile... and laugh :-)

????? P.S. and we have also very similar photocromatic glasses...

????? P.P.S. You forgot to "shrink" your head :-) LOL

DancingDolphin "Oh stop that self deprecation nonsense!!" LOL

I think you did well... editing faces with any kind of 'painterly' effect is REALLY difficult (in my humble opinion). Do you have this link? It's one of my favorite tutorials when I start playing around and turns out similar to this where you can have part of it quite blurred and part of it quite sharp.

Daryl Great portrait - I don't know you personally, but it looks like you I'm sure - and the 'voice' you share here is certainly reflected in your smile. Thanks for sharing this.

changing topic, I have photochromatic lenses in my specs too - and they really annoy me when I'm taking photos. They make it so hard to judge brightness levels! I find myself looking over the top of them constantly to understand the quality of the light.
