Superb portrait, wonderful light. My only change would be to take out those vague lighter bits, top right hand corner and the one a little lower down. They don't add much and they're a bit distracting.

Fantastic stuff. Was a little hard to tell from the thumbnail as the midtiones and highlights are limited on this shot.

The pose on this is really good the guy seems to be content in his own world and with his own thoughts.

It's possibly my screen but the rain is really subtle and took me a while to notice it. Had it not been for the title I probably wouldn't have seen it.

Cheers,

Andy.

This is ace and the fact that the rain can be removed/added at any time is not a prob. Simply because you have here a magnificent low light portrait with all the right elements ie the hand placement and the cigerette along with the detailed beard.

This is outstanding and I wouldn't think twice on having this dude printed HHUUGGEEER!

Ian.

ps, used my UA oh poo!
