Great picture. A little more space between the top and side of the head is all that's needed here that I can see.

A superb portrait, especially in mono. So much detail in every aspect. I agree with Leighton about the space at the top of the head especially.

Hi Linda and welcome to EPZ.

This is a terrific shot, - full of character that any pro would be proud to have shot.

It can benefit by adding some space to the left for a more balanced appearance, but the basics are all excellent, - the pose, eyes contact and cigarette.

It works well in this toned monotone, - it accentuates the grittiness of the character.

I have loaded a couple of mods, - the last one has the space added for comparison, - easily done in Photoshop.

All I have done is added some more contrast using curves, and sharpened a little, The second and third mods have a different toning that you might like also.


Lovely work, - hope this critique is useful,

Regards


Willie

a stunning bit of portaiture, great pose, good eye contact and the mono conversion suits the subject. you obviously managed to get him to position, its a shame you didnt ask his name, it makes it so much more worthwhile and somehow tells more of a story.

Absolutely superb well composed capture. To give it that bit more impact and to emphasise the wrinkles in the face and hands I would have gone for a really high contrast image ~ see my mod.
