    Plenty of PP done on this shoot. Off cam flash and a red flash diffuser.
    PP included colour desaturation, tone curve adjustment, selected sharpening, selected exposure adjustment (especially the eye).

    Although the unusual angle to match the unusual character, I'm quite pleased with it.

    Hope you like guys :)

    So how did you get the effect in your eye?

    You nailed it Dan - you'll be mobbed by screaming Twilight fans when you next go to Tesco's

    Great effect Dan but I'd just clone out that highlight on the nose - it draws the eye I find.

    Spot on (or rather off), Dan. You need to look at SilverFX Pro. It gives you control points that you can use to give localised control of contrast, brightness etc. Perfect for this sort of thing.

    how much better is it than the local adjust in lightroom pete?

    It's in a different league! Did you not try the demo version yet? For point control it is very useful (eg the eyes) but you can alos expand and 'combine' the zones to give you control very similar to 'real' printing using MG (ie tone and grade).
