Here he is - my favorite President, Barack Obama.
At first glance, I'm thinking, wow - what a handsome man! But what's with this ugly tie? Very distracting. President Obama would do better to lean more towards silvers than gray. He also looks great in pinks and yellows. I especially like him without a tie. In fact, he's too sexy for his tie.
A water paint filter gave this photo texture. I worked with contrasts and highlighting to shift out the gray tones, make them more blue, and set the color of the skin tone. Now you find yourself focusing more on his face? Gorgeous, isn't he?
