Thanks Pete. I will sort the spots out.
Thanks Ian and Geraint, ha ha so few comments I can thank you all personally. Yes Geraint the lighting was tried and tested: one soft box and a black sheet taken in my living room. The hard part is getting a non-model to give you a look you can use. Jude had been working a early shift and was really tired, too tired to be self conscious , so it worked to my advantage.

A simple portrait well lit and a fine expression, though I'm not quite sure how it ties in to mental health just from the shot alone, probably need to see the finished poster for that it to all come together. As a portrait it works though.

2 spots Pete mentioned need addressing and possibly the loose thread on the t-shirt seam [right] by the neck.

Thanks Paul, you would have to see the text on the poster to get the mental health link.

Yes off centre and head cropped Smile
you know I still prefer my Mk1 and still use it 75% of the time - just find the MkII too sharp and the files are huge. The SRAW is ok but 12 meg is ideal - saw the article - read in the filling station but didnt buy it - old git me too!!!

Martin - I like the eyes and the deadpan look. It's natural and strong for that reason.

I'm not so sure about the b/g though as there are a couple of horizontal lines going off from his head and the t-shirt and another down from his right (as we look) ear. Normally, no worries, but as it's meant to be a 'flat' black b/g (I'm guessing) then I'm a bit surprised at the lines.

Thanks for your comments recently..v constructive.

Thanks Howard
Ok I have uploaded a new improved version, which addresses the issues you mention.
I have a cunning way of making sure your black background is black.
Go to the side of the moniter and look back at the screen, you see all sorts of stuff.

...and a new coloured t-shirt to boot Wink Still, the b/g gets 10/10. Cheers Martin.
