I remember this kind of pictures, that texture of the skin, amazing me as a child. Is there a special trick or should I just find the correct "model"?

Amazing photo, the texture of the skin is simply amazing, and the B&W conversion just adds some more depth to it.

Keep up the great work!

In my opinion this is very good, but a bit over processed. There are a lot of artifacts around the eyes (especially the inside of each eye), and throughout the shade areas (for example, in the lower left corner) there's some pretty severe banding rather than a smooth gradient. I would guess this comes from over sharpening.

Can you say a bit more about the PP? Are you using Photoshop (and if so, what version)? Do you have Adobe Camera Raw?

the original pic is about 30 meg and this is about 2 meg i lost a lot of information in the shrinking. i printed out a 8x10 and it looks great.
about the prossesing it was a raw file prosesed in photoshop cs4
there are two many steps to mention but it was about a two hour prosses to get it to were i liked it
