    Meet Tony from the UK :)

    (small format, 300mm, f/5.6)

    I think I blew the highlights a bit, and I also cut off some of his hair, does it spoil the image?

    By the way, Tony does shave usually, just he forgot on that day ;)

    yeah, you cut off some hair, but it's not a problem and the shave makes him more.."man"!

    Not rough... "rugged" ;)

    Nice capture Alex. I don't think the blown highlights take away from the overall portrait, nor does the cropped hair.

    I don't think bright highlights matter in this image... although the chopped off hair does bother me a little. But it doesn't really matter, because it is a 'rugged' image and has impact.

    I'm really digging this photo. I did notice the hair, but I don't really care about it :) The photo is so good with the 5 o'clock shadow to the lowered brows. And I will have to trust you that its lightly blown out, cause I can't really tell :)

    Good job, sir!
