Hi Mario - to be fair, apart from one or two very tiny areas, this is probably the best yet. I know you're a perfectionist though, and as you've put the image in for feedback, I've uploaded a mod where I've marked in red two very
small areas on the right hand side where the background is showing through fractionally (along the edge of the coat) and another area just under the feather where there's a very tiny part of the feather that seems to be floating in mid-air. These aren't even really visible unless the file is blown up a bit (200%) but those are the bits that jumped out at me and I know that you'll want to sort them out.
I've also marked in red an area under the furthest eye and along the edge of the nose - there's no background issue here, but here your selection is almost too
crisp. (I know you may be thinking that sounds contrary, but in real life humans aren't that perfect
). You could go along this edge with the blur tool, set to very small and very soft and using a low opacity. This will just eliminate that sharp perfection and help it to blend in with the background just a tiny bit. Feathering your selection mask a touch would also sort this one out if you want to.
As for the rest of it - it's very well photographed indeed. I love the way the light is on the guy's face ... that is just beautiful. There's no direct eye contact but I don't personally find that an issue at all. and the clarity of that hat and feather is just wow
(You could, if you wanted, take down the sharpness and brightness of the hat and feather a touch, just to stop it dominating the top half of the guy, but that's my own personal preference and you may well feel differently about it.)
Your selection around the beardy bit, the eyebrow and the eyelashes is superb, by the way - I'm amazed you got all those tiny individual hairs in the beard!
There's something very classic about this series you're doing and I like them a lot.
