Well this is a great and pleasant surprise. Thanks everyone for the comments and votes. My husband, the model, is the really happy one here. He loves this portrait.

I'll update the pp details later. I didn't do anything extraordinary, just adjusted the exposure, contrast, and colors. The shade on the lamp that lit this shot was a soft yellow, so I had to adjust the hair and beard quite a bit to remove the yellow cast.

Again this is just an outstanding [portrait, full of character, almost looks like a person or the captain, out of a stern sea written book or movie, and also a gentle giant IMO.

Congratulations on your ribbon. A very nice "half" portrait. Looks like the ancient mariner. Remember that your husband in a set of oil skins would make a good challenge entry in the future some time.

Nice job of showing half with actually cutting off in frame buy using lighting instead. 8 psart
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2007 09:43:49 PM
Excellent! You used shadow in an imaginative way to create the illusion of half. It's beautifully executed. 10

Very nice portrait with interesting lighting on hair and color. Crop a little tighter on the right. Too much darkness there.
