I really like this shot. It looks very vintage. Some contrast would look good but then I think you'd lose the vintage look

thnx Tirediron, LuckySe7en....
Tirediron: I agree with u, but increasing contrast was to increase the highlights on forehead and nose...that I didn't risk...though not difficult.
Yea LuckySe7en: I loved ur definition, I retained the suppressed contrast...to get ur good appreciation...haha..thnx again.

his positioning seems a bit off. His body should have been angled more to the left where his left shoulder was in the pic. This side view is leaving some dead space. Plus you lose all of his neck. So he has no neck. Also I do not like the shadow cast from his glasses. Not as easy to fix though.

With all the above taken into consideration, it's still a pretty decent photo. He looks like a gentleman who would be a pleasure to meet.
