Made indoors, artificial light. Camera on tripod, polarizer lens.

Converted from RAW.

In PSCS4, added a "selective color" adjustment layer blended in normal to darken blues and cyans (set black to 100% for both blues and cyans). Copied this adjustment layer 3 more times to darken blues/cyans further. Flattened image.

Switched to lab mode. Added two "curves" adjustment layers blended in normal, adjusted lightness (strong contrast curve) in first layer, desaturated (by flattening out both "a" and "b") in second. Flattened.

Switched back to RGB, resized in steps, NN with unsharp mask, added border, saved for web.
