    The clarity you get in your shots on eyes is amazing.

    The eyes are seriously amazing. They just pull you straight in and you can't stop staring at them. He looks like he is stalking someone down haha. I can also see you taking the picture in his eyes :).

    You could really need to have a light from the back to separate the hair from the background and to create a more dynamic lighting. And I'd tone down the saturation to like 50-60%! Good luck with further editing.

    I like the shot. But to me his expression doesnt seem believable. I am assuming you were going for a look that says he just survived a week in the woods, or something like that. But to me his look says he just rubbed some dirt on his face and posed for a picutre. IMO

    I like it a lot. He looks to me like a coal miner who has just sat down to take a breather. I'd leave it just as it is. The eyes are fantastic!

    He has a little smirk which I think is ruining it. The whole photo seems to look dramatic but then he has this smirk which kills it.
