This is from a shoot from a client of mine a few weeks ago. I shot their wedding a few years back, and now they have this handsome young fella. I don't know how this one will do, but if I had to guess..I'm guessing a 5.8. I hope it will get above 6.

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that meets contributes to the open challenge well

He’s a fine handsome young chap. You’ve got a nice good sharp focus on his eyes which, as you already know, is essential for any portrait, this together with the shallow DOF helps retain our focus on him and this all works well. Personally, I think I would have tried to get a little lower down to his level, it is usually a more engaging end result rather than looking down on him. What spoils the image for me is the bright light on the top of his head, there are some clear areas there of overexposure which is a real shame especially in such a crucial area, his lovely blonde hair should be glowingly clothing his head like a crown.
