    I smell a niche market....

    Only problem is that your clients have to be local to you.

    #6 looks really interesting to me. I also like #4, but there seems to be a lot of space at the top.

    Wow, now that is a niche market! Great shots! #4 is my fave, but they are all great. I really like the color in these.

    Thank you again. The reason for the crazy crop at times is because he thinks he has a big forehead. He thought for years that it was just bad photography.
    I had to break it to him. He has a big forehead. I told him it made him look brainy, which I think it does. But just in case he hates his big forehead I did one with that really tight crop.
    Fast easy money.

    they all look great. I don't think his forehead looks particularly big, just a bit receding.

    when you say Avatar, does that mean avatar as in the little picture next to a persons name on a forum???

    #4 IS very nice. I wanna crop in close though... just above the arm. It's a very small medium. I want to make every pixel count.

    Sweet backgound! Great background ratio. Wonderful separation, depth.
