Sepia conversion in ACR


This is the final image


This is the original picture from Chinatown, New York. The man was playing checkers, way to involved to pay any attention to me while I was taking his picture.
I cropped the image square, used the adjustment brush in Adobe ACR to get rid of the bright light on the upper left corner.

You can see the other adjustments I have applied on the right side of the following screenshots

The additional steps I took in Photoshop were some dodging and burning on the face, sharpening, a bit more contrast, blurring the upper left section and adding a frame around the image
