    So you think I️ should crop some more to get rid of all the chest

    since the head is already clipped a bit, and there's no value add from the chest, i'd try a 1:1 square crop.

    I think the portrait showing so much chest/shirt & jacket takes away from the power of the face. His head is almost in the frame (just barely), so it's tight but it might work to make copies and try some various crops and see what you can do with it. The face/portrait is to me good enough to work with it some.


    edit - I noticed too looking again that the collar seems to be flatter on one side so I'd think about how much to crop and if one/either side needs a slight crop - sometimes not being quite centered can work. I think my instinct would be to - make copies first - then lop off a major portion of the bottom and make it in tight to show the face with enough collar to frame him. But that's just my thought, not necessarily a right or wrong with cropping it but a preference.

    I would like to see it square also ... take some off the top and a bunch off the bottom. The head is slightly cropped ... so slightly that it appears to be more by accident than intent. Generally, crops need to look intentional ... a deeper crop would project intent rather than accident.
