I'll be honest - this is the most exciting image I've worked on I think. :) The lovely thing (for me), is that the "face" was right there in the original. Last weekend, the thunderheads that were brewing over Nanaimo were a treat - so many, but the skies stayed clear that photos were easy to find. I was actually more interested in the power lines when I was taking these frames, and it was only when I was looking through later that I saw the striking eye and mouth.
Post processing started with working on the contrast curve, punching the blacks and saturation a bit. I've been having fun with toning backlit powerlines, so I grabbed the Tint and Temp sliders and just shoved. I liked the orange/yellow shift, but the contrast seemed to actually diminish the sun so that it looked less like an eye. I put in photoshop, duplicated the layer and set it to overlay. I was not expecting the fiery greeting, but when I saw it, I got tingles. Used a quick mask circular gradient over the sun to "hide" the overlay on that layer, and the shape of the eye came back. Duplicated another time and set to colour dodge, this time revealing a circular gradient area over the second "eye" (which was not as obvious in the orginal), then dulled it to 76% opacity.
