Thanks for the suggestion Alec ! Cropping will resulting in loss of details, I could have used clone tool, but I prefer the original one. Grin

Give the crop a try ,you will not lose detail and it will make it a much stronger image,you have got the raw file so nothing to lose.......

I second paddyman - the distracting fabric on the right was the first thing I thought could be tackled. Otherwise though it's a superb image!!

Superb image, well done. This would have been well suited to a portrait format shot, eliminating the fabric, and including more beard. But the detail is excellent. Cropping sush a small amount will not result in any significant or noticeable loss of detail. Just ensure that after saving the cropped file, check for sharpness and apply as needed. You may well need to crop anywaybif you intend to print on standard sized paper.
