I'm not a fan of the over-processed look, but it does accentuate the textures well. Why did you feel this technique benefited this photo?

Hi darthkindy,

I like the picture...and it would be interesting to see it in BW.

The effect is actually called the Dragan-effect, named after the photographer who made it his "style".

Cheers :-)

first i was sufing and i was bored and came across this on utube and it lloke interesting an thought i would try it out nothing ventured nothing gained( the pic is my dad and his beloved pet) it was the only pic i had in my library that the character i could use.
and lol i just realised that it was called the dragan effect after i posted it opps me bad. i think it has its good points and its bad its like hdr i cans see that it has its uses. (need less to say my day off is thursday and i am going charachter hunting and see what i can come up with) and just to let you know the b&w was not much. Dragan effect is just anouther tool in the chest
