The sepia effect seems to reduce the slight hot spots on his forehead and right cheek.I think I like the original more, as a straight portrait. Nice shot either way.DHaass
I like your post processing in the first image, but you must admit, you started with a very good base. Good shot.
I like the original better too --- he looks younger and healthier! The sepia image is nice, if you want a rugged, aged look and haven't achieved that status naturally.Cindi
