Classy shot, would work better in mono and remove the shadow from the hand caused by the Mike lead ... other than that a great bit of photography.

Thanks for the feedback. I tried it in mono but thought it looked cold.

Before reading the description I thought you'd taken it in a club (although on closer inspection the reflection in his glasses gives it away a bit). A bit of whispy smoke could further the illusion.

Once again glad I took the time to come back to this one. I still would like to see the mono version and hope you post it in the mods - but after seeing the PS work, I agree this is stunning.
