My reference photos were pretty clear for the most part, but naturally lent themselves to a blurred treatment, especially apparent after the wax was applied. I agree, Photoshop is incredibly useful for so many manipulations of an image. I use it a lot, but mostly to simplify light, contrast, and composition.
Thanks for taking a look. I'm flattered...and a bit starstruck, I have to say. Your work is inspirational !!

Excellent work. I can imagine the gritty charcoal on the paper. Lovely.

Do the original photos have the same power? I'm curious and would enjoy the seeing them too. The charcoal creates halation fringes around the edges of objects - are these there in the photos? You can get them in photos too using Photoshop layers with Gaussian blur set on a duplicate layer and tweaking the level of opacity.
