Me, A Self Portrait

An artist at work.

I was going to post this in black and white but as I was about to make the final conversion in Photoshop I thought, "hmmm" I think I like this as it is actually.

A little hint here for all those wondering how I do my black and white conversions, well here's a step before I do the desaturation filter, total contrast implementation

Looks like you are ready to grab someone from the screen, Jide. smile Fine work, I'd say. Why don't you post a b&w version as well, so we could look and compare.

please can you enlighten me more on the total contrast implementation. or refer me to a b&W tutorials some where on the net. i just want your kind of b&w results, please do something to help.
I know this scene well...this is what I look like every night when I retire to what my wife calls my "geek corner". She doesn't understand the benefits of having more than one monitor!

Great scene...I might have to steal the idea from you and try this myself!
Genius @ work
