Like it Tony and somehow reminds me of old 50's adverts! even the young lads pose.

Very, very stylish and effective. I love the treatment and the presentation. Might suggest turning the background to black on the very left hand side of the pic. Click.

interesting effect. i didn't know you could do that. seems a bit dark, but not in a bad way. has a rich quality to it. very masculin, if that means anything.

a lovely face. nice presentation. i wonder if a bit more of the hand would have completed the composition better for me. had a touch of trouble sorting it out.

love the lighting. perfect catchlights.

look at those lashes!

Nice work, son Wink
Made me want to read the article. Great shot in the first place, and excellent manipulation.

PS Need any Crete Builders? My lot just cut up my 200 year old beams and gave them to the villagers for fire wood!
