    Hmmm looks nice, but I Think you can probably see therres a bit too much shadow on his face.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I think you did a good job.
    I'd also like to see a little more light on his face. A reflector would help. You could use a large book by opening it up and placing it just to his left/your right so that the light bounces off the pages and helps light his face. I'd try to get it as close as possible without getting in the frame.

    I agree that is a great idea! One other thing, is his face is a bit soft, it seems like you were focused on his ear/jacket. Other then that, love it!
