[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I've seen this kind of composition from a treklens member.... I did an experiment to figure out how it was done.... This is processed thru photoshop... no plug-ins used... I seemed to forgot the whole process I did... but here's few that I remember... I duplicated the image layer/ applied desaturation/create another blank layer beneath the b&w layer and filled it with white/I set the layer mode to luminance/ eraced unwanted background and changed the bacground to a fading gray.....

I think my explanation is slightly not accurate, but i'll try to do this again and have it ellaborated step by step.... Thanks!

nice technique, I like High Kay very much :-)

Yes, I've seen this done from another member and I love it! This is just incredible....but I am the type of person that needs to WATCH you do it, rather than reading on how to do it!
Great shot! Love the child in this format!
