Different ways to skin a cat

When I am not sure what a piece needs, I have many options at my disposal to resolve the issue. So many that I am sometimes crippled by indecision (overwhelmed by options)

After a boast like that, you’d think I would post a half dozen examples here but nope- only two and a rough sketch. The point being that this is the same image with two radically different treatments.

Same base image, with a high contrast treatment to really punch up the lights and darks. Amusingly enough, the background swap actually changed the apparent composition even though the figure hasn't moved at all!
