With this shot I first started off by cleaning it up. fixing the contrast brightness etc... after that I began to adjust the levels until I got the deep color I like then I used some of PW actions such as boost put the opacity down a little ( cant remember how much) then I adjusted the levels a little more added an edge burn defined and sharpened it. but it still had a weird look so I went back and used the fresh color PW action on top of everything else which gave it the humph I was looking for. reduced the noise and the healing brush to remove some dirt on his fingers sharpened added my name on it and was done.
Here they are side my side
