One of our colleagues recently moved on to a new job, and I thought I'd make him a photo as a goodbye present. He was the EA to the boss, so I called it "The EA", using a very gothic style font. For the photo itself I gave it a '300' treatment - a la the movie. It really helped that I had been holding the flash off camera and somewhat below his face, giving a spooky, almost Halloweenish lighting. I also sharpened it right up so that it had almost a 3D feel to it - he was almost jumping off the print.
I was rather pleased, considering I spent less than half an hour on the photo - and much of that was spent rebooting my computer several times. He was pleased too. Good luck Alex.
