This is another portrait taken during our recent Faces and Places Photo Tour to Oman and probably one of my favourites from the whole trip. As you'll see if you take a look at the original the processing for this one was reasonably harsh, i.e. I muted the colours, accentuated the fine scale detail, and made him look quite a bit more sinister than he did in real life. Part of the reason for this is that we'd been playing around with his pose, particularly the cigarette, and joking that he looked like a gangster. The processing extended that theme :)
As usual, let me know what you think.
