Call this the Topaz month, if you will. For this week, and for the next three, I started by cloning out the hand in the photograph.
I then converted the background to a smart filter, and used the Topaz Impressions Filter. I used one of the “Ancient” presets. I changed the colours a bit, and shaded out the colour in the right upper hand corner of the photograph.
Then, in PS, I added back some contrast using the curves. I also darkened/enhanced the cyan and green channels in the HSL layers.
No noise reduction or sharpening. I felt that this would have been a complete mess.
Once again, thanks to the artists of Delhi Street Art for the original.
