    Well done!! I love the background in this one. A little brighter than the ones you've done in the past? Or maybe its the monitor I am on.

    Anyhow, what a cool shot! Thanks for sharing.

    Well lighted on all counts, a super portrait but ... the big but ... I want him centered. The flag seems to be next to him on his right, I'd think the flag would look best behind him on his right.

    Thanks (the other) Sharon! :)

    Thank-you! This is brighter; it's a more "official portrait" style per the client request

    You're probably right; this is my version of an RCN official portrait, and normally, the flag would be further back, so that it cut in behind his right shoulder, but this was done in his livingroom, and there simply wasn't enough room. The background is literally against one wall, and I am on the stairway!

    Quality work as always John. Very cool to be able to add the prop and give it even more meaning for you both.

    I think a expanding the canvas a bit and creating a smidgeon more top space would elevate the strength of this portrait.

    Thanks Ron! :)

    Good point; fortunately with this background, it's easy to do.

    Thanks!!
