Gods Wonderful Railway - take 2

How do I follow the success of the first - an amazing response and I thank you all very much indeed, much appreciated.
Tried this one with a tighter crop and conversion, I know what I want but can't achieve it and I can't explain it either - a bit of 'punch' is missing somehow.
Anyway, see what you think and what I could do to improve it!

Hi Beverley
Try lightening slightly using levels, sharpening slightly and clone out the mark on the nose,

Agree with the above post - great, unusual angle and all round cracking documentary portrait.

I think this is pretty great as it is. I'm just wondering how an Old Testament Prophet has got himself into this situation!

This is a much stronger shot than the colour version. Excellent.
