    Hey all!
    Happy Thanks Givings!
    Here's an image I've created, while going for an edgy and dramatic look.

    I like the look of the model, but in this case I don't like the two strobes.

    Overall I think the light is good and I like your image. If you want some critiques..ok :) maybe would like to see some more light on the right side on models eye. Because in this case eyes look different and a bit odd. But as I said for me this is still very good image.

    Thanks for sharing!

    The lighting on the left side gives that left eye a droopy appearance. I don't know how you could of fixed that and keep the cool look of the photo. I've always liked darker exposures for males.

    I concur with above comments about the lighting, but my other cent to add would be to either crop a LOT closer, or reshoot so you aren't cutting off his hair or fingers.

    Hey all!
    I definitely agree.
    For next time, better crop, more fill, better catch light, and a bit less nuking on the edge lights.
    Thanks for your suggestions, very much appreciated.

    I like the dramatic lighting.
    Would prefer all the hands of none, cut in half not so much.
    I think per your explanation you achieved you goal.
