I'm grateful to my friend whose work I admire and who kindly suggested several alternative approaches to one of my earlier uploads here ... this is one of them!

Any feedback (+/-) welcomed!

Thank you for viewing.

HI Susie
I like it, the crop works well and I like the B&W treatment you have given it.It could be a little sharper, but its not bad considering thats quite a hefty crop from the orginal. Looking at the orginal I think I would have used the 'other side' of his face, its better looking!

Good use of space Susie - funny how the bits without anything in them (inc the border) can be as important as the subject isn't it?
It's such a great picture that, as I was eating my lunch with one hand I couldn't resist doing an alternative take on it with the other. Hope you don't mind a couple of mods made whilst eating a rice cake!
Good stuff Susie.

really superb Susie. Liked the original, but this lifts it a level higher. And the presentation is perfect for this. You should show it to the guy... sure he'll love it

Thank you Iain, Michael, Cathy, Si, Vinny, Angela, Tess and Ron for taking the time to view and comment ... it's much appreciated!

lol Wendy - not sure, but I'd certainly happily photograph him again!

Hi Martin - appreciate your considered feedback, as always. Actually elected not to apply any sharpening to this at all, so a sharper result is certainly an option.

Richard - thank you so much for taking the time and effort to prepare the mods! I love the way there's so many potential images within any single capture. Your thoughtful impressions are also welcomed, as always ...

Koen - thank you for your valued comments, I'm grateful for you dropping by!

great image, like the toning very much. click

quickly visited the modifications. I think the sepia colour is the best. Its composition is interesting and the image is razor sharp.

Hi Martin - thank you so much for going to the trouble to prepare a mod! Your version is close to one of the other crops suggested by my friend, and I agree that it's probably his 'best side' ... thank you once again!

Cheers also Robert, James and Sam ... very grateful for your impressions!

Hi Susie
I think my mod might look a bit bland, although better looking! and his ear seems distractingly large, even though i blurred it.Anyway food for thought. Well done on getting an rc.Three in a row and I will have to upgrade you.

This is just superb..the toning, clarity, DOF, and presentation are particularly good. Easily your best image to date, despite some tough competition!
