Unusual Style of Photography

I found an amazing set of photographs on flickr.com recently. I was so impressed by the style of photography and post-production (photoshopping), that I stuck up a dialog with the photographer to find out how he does it. Then I tried one of my own photos along similar lines as his.

It’s an unusual look, for sure. It can make people look older than they are, but the textures and colors make for a pretty expressive image.
