The source image is a screen cap from Lars Von Trier's film Anti-Christ. Its content is in a similar vein of a concept I'm developing, so it seemed appropriate to test out broadstroke ideas with the processing theme. Thoughts?

Primary techniques used: Curves Adjustments, Levels, Clarity, and B&D.

I'll be the first to point out that the highlight areas are weak. I wish they were more of a white tone. Tips on this?

I think its a highly creative concept but i would cover the other parts of the bodies from the roots and fix the light so it will make your focal stand out more.
