    Merc,

    I like it! It is flat lit but acceptable, and the colors are a bit warm which can easily be fixed in PS. While in PS I would also lighten us his teeth so they are not so dark.

    I like the shot the way it is now, the warm tones work nicely with the brown hair and eyes.

    I'm a fan of the warm tones here - I think it works really well.

    Great job here, lets see some more!

    Very good stuff. It's tough to do a somewhat high-key look in a color photograph like this. :thumbsup:
