Attempting some outdoor photography.
I am posting the original picture cropped and uneditted (#1)
And then some editting and switch to B&W (#2.)
I am not that great with any program yet, so I was unable to
paint over the blemishes. I would appreciate and comments and critiquing that would help me to take better portraits.

I'm not sure the angle of the pose works for me - The fact that he's looking down leads me right off and away from the photograph. I do prefer the blk/white one over the color though just b/c his hair is soo shiny and the blk/white creates nice texture.

Definitely the B+W shot. Think about using the healing brush in Photoshop to clean up some of the acne.
