About the Image(s)

Shot was taken at Pirate Fest in Boynton Beach FL. Shot with Nikon D7000, Tamron 18 400 F 4.8 @ 1/1500 of a second.
Processed in light room and Photoshop. I added a texture in Topaz studio 2 to get the rain effect.

Nice Art Work; I love how sharp the eyes are.   Posted: 11/10/2019 19:47:18

Nice work Herb. I like the way the image is blended into background. Could use a small stroke around photo.   Posted: 11/11/2019 09:57:24

Hmmmm ... interesting !! I like the textures in his hair and face. Not sure about his hand -- looks like stubby fingers with rubber gloves ?? And the black around and below his neck is curious. I would love to see this image with a different texture. I'm not sure what the rain drops do for it. I'd love to see the original image, too. The image definitely grabs the eye and makes me look all over the place at the details.   Posted: 11/11/2019 16:52:43

Herb, I like your choice of b&w and the texture you applied to the image. Nice job on the eyes! I like that you are experimenting with Topaz Studio 2. I have Topaz Studio 2 on my wish list.   Posted: 11/12/2019 17:23:31

Nice image. The rain drops do not do anything for me.   Posted: 11/14/2019 14:37:49

A very creative treatment of a strong portrait! Hair, eyes and facepaint make this subject really stand out in B/W. However, I find the hand area too dark and would like to see more detail here. Also, the left jawline and adjacent pipestem are too soft. Overall, though, well done! I just have to get Topaz Studio 2!!   Posted: 11/25/2019 14:21:34
