Certinly different. The two top ones' effect doesn't talk to me, but I do like the next three. They look classical, like a portrait of a famous person in a nice frame. The two bottom subjects seem more fearsome with the effect, however. Nice experiments, I would continue to apply them to other subjects, perhaps humans also.

Thanks for your comments! The more hi-key style of the first two is probably not to the liking of everybody :)

The last 3 as you wrote are more the classical approach ... I like portraits of the contrasty style but applying that to humans requires a subject that accepts the harsh processing and those are hard to find :)

 

again thanks for the comments as they help a lot to critically assess my own work!

Cheers, Chris
