Fabulous but it would be better still without the glare on the glasses. Can you clone it out? Well done though.

The tones are great in the shot, and I wouldn't be inclined to clone out the reflection, as it adds to the shot. I would have possibly cropped a little less on the bottom of the shot, as it would balance better. I would also use some selective sharpening in places to bring out the masculinity of the features.

The first thing that I would have done would be to crop out the sides which don't add anything to the image whilst still remaining within the rule of thirds parameters. See my mod

I have to agree that the white area on the glasses is far too much of a distraction and needs to be cloned out.

Hope this helps

I think you've made a good job for your first attempt. I'm not too worried about the reflection either, I'd only crop a little tighter from left and right.
