I know I have already awarded a trophy to this picture... but I would like to comment again that this is one of those pictures that inspire me to pick the camera up.

What a picture, Jason, what a picture!

ETA: I would love to find out the post processing, if any, that you did here.

Excellent portrait indeed. Beautiful processing in the skin. The subtle blue and pink tones work too. Very intriguing. (Great title too.)

Wow!!!! This one is like a story waiting to happen. I would be interested in knowing the post processing steps. Did you use bracketing and multiple exposures?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Jason, this is mesmerizing! Captivating! I think it should have scored where you said it was earlier in the week: High 6's! But Congratulations on continuing your successive role of EXCELLENT photos and scores. Now all your profile photos are 6's or above. Good job, my friend!

Awesome. Amazingly captivating eyes and the processing is excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

the eyes are oustanding but the heavily processed skin to overemphasize the shadows and dark areas does not work for me at all

Nice contrast, his eyes look fabulous. Great focus.

The BLUE! Incredible eyes. Wonderful portrait.

There's something along the right of his face... a line of deeper red that has me puzzled. Check it on a different monitor and see if you can see it.

He's a BEAUTIFUL boy. Sorry to use beautiful for 'boy'... but that's what he is. :)

The eyes are brilliant, wish the skin tones were just a little more even (less harsh)
