My son, Owen. Luckily, we had some interesting skies this morning.

PP: I selected the sky and applied NeatImage to it. Then converted to b/w using the channel mixer with reds and blues low and greens high.

I then selected the bottom of the photo and used the channel mixer to convert to b/w.

I resized for web.

Selected the sky and sharpened with a large pixel radius and small percentage to add contrast. Then I sharpened the left and right of Owen. I sharpened Owen then, but I had to fade it to about 30% because he was getting halos.

I then added the border.

Enjoy!

Nice shot. I think it would have had more impact if the boy was faced the other way. Just my H. O. This is a really well processed B/W.
