...that's what this image reminds me of. Taken during Qing Ming at the cemetery in stealth mode (candid).

your love of this pp technique is evident though i feel the effect should be used in moderation especially when the subjects tend to look like they have some patchy suntan action going on.

Have to agree with lanatir on this one, although a nice picture I don't feel this style of PP really works here and it looks a bit heavy.

This is not a portrait that is going to be dramatic however you process it, best for these kind pics just to keep it realistic IMHO.

OK. Back to the drawing board.

Will try my previous standard PP and see how it looks. Thanks for your opinion.

Original image is in my laptop at home. Will show it when I get back.

Stealth pix must use long lens lor...70-200VR.

I wanted to but time does not permit leh. To close clinic to go shooting is a bit too expensive. However I know that time will eventually come.

Looks like I have overdone it this time. To be honest I actually did a new different pp on this one to get this look. Like I have mentioned above...back to the drawing board on this one. Thanks for all the honest inputs. This will help me go a different direction in pp.
