Pretty easy lightning configuration.
Having the whole of the face sharp I think would have been better, perhaps even just one stop closed and some modest tilt in order to pull the attention from the shirt - which I think is already distracting; a simple stripe pattern would be better, or even a solid dark grey knit at Zone 3-4 would have been better?
Do you use a focussing loupe?
I found it very "symmetric" and in combination with the stripes from the shirt make it a little confussing and distracting as unpopular says , it has too much contrast ( this could be fixed in the dark room with filters...)
One-eyed Jack! Feels like he is too far to the left side of the frame.
The symmetry and high contrast is a personnal choice, but doesn't seem to work for everyone. Thanks for your comments, they are pretty much appreciated !
