like the effect very much, ask him not to shave for a few months and you could get a long beard shot as well !!! Very nice portrait. Sue

Good portrait shot.
My thought is that a small crop of the left to off set the face a little to one side may give it more impact.

I was looking at this when silly things happened on the site.!
A great portrait, you seem to be getting on well with the technique. -Any secrets for sharing?

My earlier comment was lost due to the crash!...

I still like it a lot. And I've found some tutorials, so I might have to try it. What I need now is a wrinkly subject...

Where's that mirror? Wink

This is really good, this more subtle approach lends a sort of ultra-realism to the image. It's complimented by a great, relaxed pose and good lighting.

If I'm going to make one small criticism, I think the eyes look a little milky compare to everything else, and could maybe do with the slightest increase in contrast. Very small point, though.

Great shot & love the lighting & eye detail.

Clicked here earlier, looks like the site problems meant it didn't register.
Love the shot, sensitively handled, more subtle than Dragan in my opinion. BGB should be happy.
