About the Image(s)

I found this guy while passing through and I noticed this guy is looking at me. I grabbed my iPhone and took his photo and made him happy. Later, I decided to convert him to Mono to bring his face stand out. I just made a fine selection and tone down the background carefully and then sharpened his face for more details. Suggestions are welcome as there is always room for improvement!

I saw it immediately and smiled! You have made the face the center of attention. With the B&W, I might try to sharpen the central figure even more to bring out more of the texture. There are some really nice lines and texture that could pop.   Posted: 06/11/2020 08:21:44

Deddie-Here is the image you suggested for sharpening and more details in texture. I hope this is what you were looking for.

Hi Shaikh, For some reason I like the original photograph best. I see more of a variance in color and texture in that image. Possibly do a little more facial sharpening on the original. You do have a good eye for seeing photo opportunities that others may pass by. This is definitely a "good find".   Posted: 06/11/2020 19:04:30

Where do you find these things? I could probably have looked at this for a week and never seen that face. Well done.   Posted: 06/11/2020 19:29:52

This image reminds me of the character Groot that was in Guardians of the Galaxy. Pretty neat   Posted: 06/25/2020 20:08:14

Nice job recognizing the face in your original. Your post processing brings it out even more prominently.   Posted: 06/27/2020 13:34:47
