Welcome Estaban.


The subject is terrific. The eye contact great. The post processing is not what I would like to see.

For me, it is too dark overall, - especially his face, and that tone doesnt suit the shot. I dont know how you applied a tone, but if you just overlaid a filter, you will lose exposure and contrast. Duo toning will work best.

Its soft, and needs to be sharper here on the site. I have to assume you original is sharp, but its lost sharpness through re sizing and compression. The process is re size image so longest side = site requirements; then save as a new file name, at HIGHEST quality; then open the new file; check for sharpness; apply as needed; save, and only then upload.

I would crop so not to have a square format, which can look like a passport photo (and this is way better than that), and I have uploaded two mods, - first is straight black and white, the second is duo toned a warm grey.



Hope you find this helpful.



Regards


Willie

The basis of a superb character portrait. Just a bit too dark as Willie indicates. It needs a slight brightness and contrast boost to lift from good to excellent.
