Took this today, interested in crit or advice for it.... (I know the spot on the hat top right should be cloned out)

Tricky to comment on this one as it is not entirely clear what you were aiming at, e.g.a high-key effect or whatever. This might actually work better in B/W... I've uploaded a modification for you to consider.
Don't know what spot on the hat you are referring to, the only difference I would make is to remove one of the catchlights from each eye. Andy
I like this shot but I think there's a couple of things that need seeing to..
1: The skin tones are so over exposed that you're creating hot spots. Lower the contrast or raise the gamma to try and even the tone out.
2: There is some barely discernible texture either side of the subjects head, which either needs accentuating and graduating towards high key at the top, or removing completely.
Aside from that, I'd have to agree with Andy that one of the catch lights needs removing.
It may be that the skin tones look different on your monitor. I fully recommend getting Spyder 3 Elite (£100 ish) and professional calibrating your colours and monotones so that your print reproduction matches your monitor out put.
All appreciated and taken on board.
Im calibrated with a spyder II but think I will recal and see if its off.
Double catchlight will be gone ....
Mine resets itself sometimes. I can usually tell when the monitor has factory reset when people start telling me colours and hi-lights are all over the place
LOL yeh, I got to remember to select mine when I boot the machine up
Im really not sure about the colours. I have modded the image "see above" to black and white. I have changed the shodows and highlights to help bring out more details in the face and shoulders. The shoulders in the original image were blended into the background making to man look odd. But still I like to angle of the shot and the idea. Well Done.
