    It's lacking a bit of contrast,
    Very interesting subject though.

    Wonderful subject, very revernt.

    I agree though that the image lacks contrast and saturation. Checking the histogram shows a very flat line across the full color spectrum.

    Attached is a panel of 3 versions
    top left = original
    top right = Adjusted selective color Red Channle / Cyan - 20 Black +3 (skin tone somewhat heavy in the red tones from Save for Web Compression in Photoshop)
    Brightness and Contrast adjusted to taste
    quick mask eyes and apply a curves adjustment to the whites and irse, duplicate eye selection to new layer set blending mode to Luminosity and apply unsharp mask +27
    Burn in shadows and seletctivly sharpen hard edge detail areas

    Bottom Image

    Custom B&W conversion based off the top right version using adjustments shown in the attached screenshot and some additional butrning and sharpening of shadow and highlight areas.
