the edited pic certainly draws the observer directly to the face of the monk since the tones are darker... i must say i like the edited version better but it has caused a bit of noise/grain on the monks face :) (at the same time i would like to take the oppurtunity to say Christ is Born! Glorify Him! Merry Christmas to my dear brothers and sisters in the Lord!)
I reedited this picture and post it on my gallery here: http://www.misiune-ortodoxa.ro/coppermine/v/people/portrait/ips-pimen-bw-hi.jpg.html
Please tell me if this one is better. Thank you!
I understand... I am not a master of digital postprocessing images, and this one is my first black and white photo ever published. I have to learn a lot of things from you so I must thank to everyone who shows me where I make mistakes.
So... thank you!
Backovic: Very nice portrait, but missing contrast!
I would like so much to understand serbian language! But I only understand romanian and english :(
