What a great use of lighting Louis, but I would expect nothing less, were those your new alien bees? This should have finished higher, but congrats nonetheless on your second highest score!

Superb...can`t add to what`s been said already except to say that it should have been top 5 IMO.

you've got the lighting thing mastered, it seems. That last one I remember (faceless?) was great too.

Ah, there you are! Exceptional light, as always. You really should see if GQ wants to hire you - they'd get a bargain because you can shoot yourself. Of course, you'd have to charge both modeling fees and photography fees... And for the record, I still think the one you had in the Lighting challenge was one of your best. I do thank you for sharing these.

Looks like you're off to a great start with those new lights, Louis. This one is great, the bit of leather emphasizes the masculine quality, as does the strong light. Nice job.

Nice lighting on this. Composition seems a bit off balance but so does most of mine. On of the better in the challenge I've seen so far.
