well its a cracking portrait, dosnt look reinactment stuff, quite ethnic really and im not going to say much negative about it,

just compositionally the flap of his hat over his ear makes that side of the composition a bit heavy and it would have looked better over on the left side of frame but i guess he would have been tetchy if you had flapped his hat about his head.

the background is nice and out of focus and there are some nice textures here with his whiskers and hat fabric. his eyes are nice and sharp and i dont think i could have done anything really different. nice head shot.

I like it too Mario, well done. Can only suggest to crop space from the top. You might have got a little more detail with the aperture stopped down one, - but that may have included too much wall detail you didnt want.



I loaded a mod using the Dragan effect action, - let me know if you like it.

Hi Mario, another great shot. I've done a mod and put it into Photoshop camera raw. Made adjustment with contrast, highlights and shadows, clarity and vibrance. I put it into PS, duplicated the background, layers panel - blend mode - soft light - opacity 50%. Hope you like it.

Another super portrait, just love some of your work.

The mod is just another take on the idea.

I prefer yours to the mods. The skin tones are very nice. It certainly is a very strong portrait, I see no changes I would make.
