I think he was pleased to be in the picture!
This is a likeable candid photo that works well in monochrome. The monk's hair and head verge on being 'burned out' (excessively overexposed and lacking detail) although not disastrously so. It might have been a good plan to dial in some underexposure in Exposure Compensation, perhaps only - 0.3 EV would do: your software would allow you both to lighten the resulting image where necessary and to retain the detail. I hope this helps!

Thanks wooly (or is it Bill) I agree although its odd, most of these images have been online or in club competition in some form or another, and they don't seem to look as good on here, some seem soft, and in this case, quite blown. I think I might find the original and see what it looked like before I did my random fiddling! I appreciate the feedback, its exactly what I came here for so thank you again.

I have had another go at editing this image and put the result up as a variant - taking woolybill's advice (and a years more experience). I did some high pass sharpening, re did the mono conversion using Niks silver effects pro 2 and cloned the burnt area off his head. I think it looks better, what do you think?

V2 is very much improved, Bevy! The entire image is altogether punchier and the monk's character shine forth from his expression.
No need for me to add anything else. It does take a little while to get used to the camera settings and the processing required to make one's pictures appear at their best online.
Regards
Bill

Bill showed this to me just now, I like the warm good humour of it, enhanced by the dappled light. And I do like V2 much better! It has a greater sense of depth, texture; plus the slight rotation was needed.
Belatedly, welcome to the site, it's a great learning place.
Re your comment about images looking poorer on ePHOTOzine, are you compressing the image yourself to the upload size (max 1000 pixels per side as you are in e2) or leaving it to the site to do it automatically? Also, I see quite a lot of problems in images where people have used 'Save for Web', which seems to want to take decisions for you. Maybe I'm a control freak but I like to do this for myself!

Moira,
Thank you for the nice comments. In this case I was mistaken, it was the photo lol not ePHOTOzine, on one of my other images though (the last dance) I have had that printed for a club comp and its really sharp, so I will look at how I upload next time..I just let everything go automatically without checking!
