This is my penultimate shot from Dubai, and probably my favourite portrait in quite some time. If you're interested, the original is here:

.../archives/souk_portrait_3.php

As you can see, I haven't done much in terms of the content (a bit of minor cloning in the background), but did spend quite some time getting the black and white conversion right. In this instance, I used the Channel Mixer, biased towards the blue channel, to accentuate the details in his face and hair.

I'd be interested to hear how you think this one compares to yesterday's.
