    the second one was a bit different but still the same idea, something abstract and kinda artistic...just interesting somehow...I wanned to know if I had to pick one or the other which one you guys think is better...the second one is captioned "no one"

    Hm. 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.

    The first one looks like a simple photo.. the second makes you look like
    a preditor from the depths... LOL

    I agree with Eric, try one halfway in between and it might be the look you were seeking. Keep up the good work

    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.
