Thanks to Mark (model) and Jacob (VAL) for playing along. I asked Mark if he had any quirky clothes and we picked the shirt & waistcoat to give a old-world feel. Jacob held my one speedlight way above his head inside a pillowcase I sequestered for my softbox.

LR: crop, highlights, clarity, opened shadows
PS: healed a small shine on nose, dodge & burn on hair and face, dimmed reflection on wall
SilverFX: added very slight sepia tone
ColorFX: added vignette

The most here I am portrait in the challenge, and good for him. He seems to be holding nothing back, which is rare and admirable. I like how he's facing the camera from a half-turned body, giving the image additional dynamism. I can imagine him being an actor. Bravo.

Lovely, warm portrait. Beautiful lighting. Only nitpick is the texture in the wall to the left. It pulls my eye a little bit.

Fabulous portrait. The upper left hand corner is slightly distracting (it looks like it needs ironing).
