It's great to see a portrait that gives so much. It makes a change to see a man that
can look so sexy without even trying. Your skills in using natural light and composition are brilliant. any more?

Cathy, I find it really interesting what you are doing here. Also what a strange, but somehow compelling website you linked to, thanks for sharing that.
This shot I like alot, but it looks like he needs to wash his face.
I suspect the orginal shot, is very good.Could you post it under the mod section, so we can compare and contrast.
