Actually, you can get Ash's light settings if you do step 12. I added that step after I posted my version of the picture. As for blur, you can set the unfocus to 4px, but I like it higher. And the aim wasn't really to get the same exact picture (even though I'm close), but to make a tut that shows you how to do it on another picture.

EDIT: I unlazied myself and played with step 12 and curves:

The thing is that it's hard to unlazy. You need to hit Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Windows Key+Tab+Delete+Esc+F7+Z. That's why I don't unlazy very often.

EDIT: I just tried to do the shortcut in real life. It was hard, but I did it (I used my chin for F7).

However, after seeing Ash's, maybe mine ain't that good. Actually quite shoddy.

All you need to do is just to adjust some brightness/contrast 8)

That worked beautifully. Thanks a bunch!

I think the main part of it was the Layer blend mode [Multiply]. Then the rest was just blurring and dramatizing.

I never would've thought to go B/W, and then blend with Multiply. I usually just blow around with the contrast. This was a much better idea.

I finally looked at the tutorial they posted and boy is my process different! Now I know to never translate a PS tut-- only try to recreate it.

After using PDN for a while. Usually, one would know what steps to take to reach the look they want. Unless it's something totally new and mind blowing.

And I did the same image with a little different steps then uH, but came out quite the same. :)
