    the expression is good, but i don't like that sort of light near his cheek..can you eliminate it? and the white part on the top..could you replace it with black?

    I usually do not do that much editing (as in cloning things) .. but I agree that flare is a bit annoying.

    [EDIT:] Changed that, removed some of the disturbing light.

    I think it's a little too close and too centered for my taste. I like the contrast and tones that you have though.

    Thanks :)

    I saw no reason to put the image out of balance by moving his face further off centre. But as you say, this is a question of taste.

    But why too close? ;) It is a close-up after all :)

    This is nice, I like it. You've caught the personality of him and the contrast is good. I think making the lighting just a bit less harsh might improve the photo a bit, drawing less attention to his forehead. I also like the shallow DOF.:thumbup:
