Draw out emotion out of someone's picture

Hey everyone,

I felt compeled to register on this website and start a thread for some reason, and I'm giving you all a little challenge I think you might find quite interesting. Here I go:

I'm looking for a way to draw out the emotion out of any photo of a person's face. Is there a way to accentuate micro-expressions, little wrinkles, etc, to like I said draw out the emotion--which does exist--beneath the surface. I've attached two photos: one being pretty bland, and the other bursting with emotion

There are various 'effects' you can use but originally such images were the result of extremely good photography, lighting and processing.

If you have a look here http://registry.gimp.org/node/9592 you will see where your first image comes from. There it is described as a National Geographic effect.

There are others, the photographer Dave Hill gives his name to another effect. A discussion here

True.
My illustrations on greeting cards since 1980 have required emotion depiction to be sort of my stock in trade. Facial expression, body language, event and action are all incorporated. I tend to do the same in my other art as well. Most of the greeting card art are humorous paintings/illustrations...
