Its a nice shot as it is. I would suggest a few tweaks. The conversion to mono, - if its done simply by clicking grayscale, you can get better mid tone and contrast using the Channel Mixer (Photoshop); place a thin black frame around the shot before adding the white canvas, just to delineate the shot from the frame, as the overall tone is similar; crop space from the right and add to the top to place the near eye on a third.


Ive done this in the mod, and in addition Ive added a small amount of diffuse glow to soften, while adding more contrast and detail in the eye and mouth.



Hope you find something useful here,



regards


Willie

I don't normally like borders, but do think Willies thin black line is a must here. I quite like the tones as is - there will not be much to give contrast in such an image and the effect here is one of a softness, (not un-sharpness) which goes well with the minimal depth.

its a beautiful thing,
im going to be a grandad at Christmas so ill be doing the same hopefully real soon. just seen the video of the 3 d scan. wow

i love the limited depth of field you have carefully selected, the mono conversion is delicate and suits the skin and the high key effect

compositionally i would have tried to take a slightly lower view to lose more of the left side of the face to try and lose the cheek showing just behind the lips with the lips forming the edge profile, and try to make the nose break through the edge of the face left side if you understand what i am trying to say.

but hey, you have got to love it,
Phil
