Me and My Machete

By Flemmingbo

When I was a kid I build a lightsaber out of metal and wood and sprinted around our farm, pretending I was Luke Skywalker (still do, minus lightsaber and farm). I must admit that having your own machete is also quite cool. This boy in Papua New Guinea caught my eye with an intense look:

This image has been quite heavily processed as I felt it was a strong image that I wanted to make even stronger buy adding and subtracting a bit of light and drama. I used several curves layers masked in and a few Jedi tricks and after many different takes, I found the dark desaturated look I was after. What is your opinion of Me and My Machete?
