The lab at school promised to phone me when my prints were ready last night, so I finally had a bit of time to play around with something other than my portfolio. (I finally drove into the city at 8:30pm and came home near 11pm, driving through some strong winds, but I got my prints!)
This gorgeous image didn’t need much editing, basically just some post processing.
So my basic edit, after a little sharpening, levels and surface blur to soften the skin, looked like this (just had to try black and white):
I just played around a bit and got some interesting other effects. I think it is very much a question of personal taste which one you like best.
