Roman Female Bust #1, SLAM

A remarkable specimen from the antiquity collection at the St. Louis Art Museum, this small bust is dated from 200 BC.  I subjected the original image to much torture.
Technical: Nikon D100, AF Nikkor 50mm f1.8D, ISO 800, f1.8 @ 1/200s, handheld.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.5 to crop and adjust color temperature, with further editing in Nik Silver Efex Pro to apply the dark sepia preset and apply the Ilford HP5 Plus film profile.  I'm using the 15 day free trial and must say that I'm very impressed with the results.
