This is BEAUTIFUL! I love how the eyes stand out and are not faded. How do you actually achieve this look? I have been workin and working with my PS3 on this and cannot get mine to turn out as good as yours has. How did you keep the eyes looking so sharp? Thanks and again, GREAT job!! #5458033

Thank you all for taking time to comment. Jennifer, to achieve this look I did a deliberate over exposure in camera with 2 strobes. In photoshop I made a black and white conversion and a curves adjustment to bring the tones in a bit. I added another layer with a custom high pass filter and experimented with the different blend modes till I found what I liked. I didn't take the time to write down the exact slider measurements for the adjustments...but this will point you in the right direction. I also did an unsharp mask adjustment on the high pass filter layer. #5461025
