Great tonal range and I like how you can still see the light on the dark side of your face. Congrats on your 7th place finish.

I like the black & white. Nice amount of drama without being over the top.

Like a spot light in the night. Great impressive visual with wise selection of attire to aid in the effect. Also, a very fine portrayal with meticulous tonal strength to deliniate the fine facial feautures. Bump.

The half and half look does not always work well, but it does here. Especially with the light working through the left eye from the side. Good shot.

Best of the side-lit ones so far, grats! One thing, I think the shirt in the lower left corner should have been removed.

Terrific use of light and shadow! Love how the light dances on your hair. Nice variance of line between the curls and the vertical strips of your shirt. Your eye is perfectly focused. 8
