    Intresting. Pretty sharp for 1/4 SS. I wish the lighting was either even across the face, or only on one side

    First word that came to mind: Monk.

    Not bad! It's different. It hard to picture it done at a 6.3mm focal setting.

    Thanks for the views and replies.

    Monk is a good direction; I was going for some mysterious hooded figure look anyways.

    Yes, honesty is good.

    Heck yeah, lay it on me.

    Yeah I can appreciate that. The only lighting nitpick I have about this is the shadow that is casted from my nose; it covers the right eye a bit too much. :meh:

    I'll keep that in mind and light the other side a tad bit more.

    I think it's a great shot. Makes me think of a boxer, or an athlete in training. Good job. What was the light source?

    Awesome! Thank you!

    The light source was one lamp that was positioned near the floor in front of me.
