Sedative saidHm. I like. Somewhere between the two, perhaps? I'm thinking you added a texture overlay on Burn on the second pic. Try lowering the opacity a bit. A little texture but don't overdo it, your features are all obscured. Depends on what it is for, of course.
I used a skin correction layer, RGB curves with normal blending to expose more the whites and the blacks, brightness/contrast and a blue photo filter. however the effect you can see the most I got it with another curve layer where I totally affected independent chanels of green, red and blue, the blending mode is normal as well. I just wanned to get something that looks interesting and not necessarily "good", i dont know if you guys know what i mean. Im gonna try your idea of mixing both samples and see what i get from that.
