Nancy (wife) has really shown me some of the power of the Alien Skin Exposure plugin. She had used some of the ultra contrast filters on some of her work and I thought I would try it on mine. The first shot is of a kwati using the ultra contrast 75% filter. The second image (the monkey) is using an infrared fog-bright filter. I think the first one is interesting because it starts to look almost like a drawing. The second one really conveys a mood.
