    Well, you know the old saying, "You can please some of the people some of the time...", etc. Actually, that's a paraphrase of a more pithy saying. That said, thanks to all who took the time to comment, which ever direction you took.

    Well, Bill, it seems we are voting each other's entries more and more often higher than the rest of the crowd. I still think this shows a classic execution and composition which was deserving of more appreciation in the end result. Maybe, like the maid of the mist, fewer like images with more texture/grain and without the "smooth sheen" as much?

    Ha! My old PowerShot A200 can produce the same old styled pictures without any of these sophisticated pp techniques... LOL! Just kidding!
Very cool style, very nice shot!

    Really a very stylish pic with a pleasant composition/framing. BW works nicely, but I think I would have liked better the grain being monochrome. Nice portrait for sure, well done!! :-)

    so much post processing, was the original in colour and what was reflected in the sunglasses? make the picture dull for me .........

    Very striking and interesting shot. Some of the shots here are attractive mainly because the subjects themselves are intrinsically attractive whereas others, like this one, rely more on skillful choices by the photographer for their appeal. While both result in pleasing photographs, I feel those where the photographer has "created" the appeal are more deserving of high places in a photo contest.
There's a slightly distracting ghosting around the hat brim in the upper right, probably caused by the background Gaussian blur, but overall very nice work. In my top five.

    I'm not wild about the image but the professionalism in the execution is too good for me not to place this in my TT.
