    Versions

    I ran this one in RFF, but it seems to me this is a more appropriate spot. Opinions?

    Four versions:
    1. Original
    2. Noise-Ninjaed for that DSLR-look
    3 Black and White
    4. Just for fun - a fake movie-still

    Another vote for the original, though the "fake movie still" works too. (The B&W has way too much contrast for my taste.)

    Re: Versions

    FWIW, when I want a gritty B&W I sometimes start with a bleach bypass effect (what you called movie still).

    Normally for the BBP, I desaturate reds (skin) a bit more than the other channels, and leave them up a bit. Then I keep contrast up a bit so it has more of an edge. I borrowed you first image and processed it as such in attachment 1.

    Then for the B&W I just converted the BBP effect shown in CS by adding a B&W adjustment layer -- simple.

    Don't know if you like the effects better or not, but I figured it was worth sharing

    Cheers,

    Also a very intersting treatment, Jack, but maybe a bit too processed for me.

    I tweaked one version a bit:

    Hi Jaap,

    A very good portrait that I prefer in its original form.
