Awesome photo...the detail and the contrast between the models is just beautiful...What settings did you use and how did you do this... I would really like to try this out on a portrait photo of my daughter... I'd appreciate any input you could share ...Thanks....Congrats on POTD! Very well deserved....Tessa

to Theresa V. : Tnx...I did this from basicly normal picture, normaly exposed maybe with litle harder direct light ( no softbox ) but basicly this could be done from any portrait. Try to play with brightness / contrast ; selective color option ( every color adjust separatly ) ; shadows / highlight option...I did some things simultanesly in small steps . ading contrast ,completly desaturate yellow ( basicly every color except red ), pushed white more to white and black more to black in selective colors...I clone out whats left of colors in white areas...When I do something like this I'm going in small steps little by little till I get what I want. This things I describe don't effect every picture in same way. You need to experiment and play...hope I help a little...

Dean, the time that you put into this photo was worth it. The end result is phenomenal. And the contrast between the women is perfect. Not to mention that they are eye catching in and of themselves. :-)
