Gritty Portrait Experiment (aka "The Coalminer" look)
Here's another shot taken at the same time and given the same kind of treatment... only this time I did nothing to reduce (or increase) the blemishing effect of the channel mixer.

Its not the kind of shot I'd use to try to pick up girls, but I do still like it. Lol

[Image: 22_IMG_0881_440.jpg]

btw, for those interested.. both shots were taken with the EF 135mm f/2L. The first at f/2 (1/60th sec) and the 2nd at f/4 (1/20th sec) - both at 100 ISO. The main lighting was from a window off to the side, but I also had an EX430 external flash bouncing off a white reflector on the floor directly in front of the camera.

Edit: I lightened the image very slightly and re-uploaded it, replacing the original in this post.
