Very nice portrait.Congratulations on top 10! I may have preferred tighter cropping from bottom & more space on left side giving a wider format than a square.

It's good to see you shoot something other than drops.

This is a really Great shot, however I think if you had you moved the camera up about an inch it would have made the mood feel a little better.

Lovely portrait, Irene. I like the results of the desaturation. I see good natured humor in his face. For some reason I thought this would turn out to be a self-portrait!

One of my top favorites in this challenge. The lighting on the face appeals to me, good sharpness, depth of field and focus as well, brings out the facial details.

that's just what the neighbors will say after he goes on a killing spree.

I love the PP here, the desaturate works perfect, and his eyes pop up like knives telling you a lot of things about his personality. One can not stop looking into his eyes...so well done, one of my favorites. But then again, what else can you expect from this AMAZING photographer. Keep winning your well deserved ribbons.

Yeah, that's what they all say. :P
Great lighting and all the technicals are solid - a little hot on the end of the nose, but overall well done. And he does come across as a nice guy in this.

Nice and relaxed, great lighting and composition. I like the hint of self exposed here. Still leaves a bit to be discovered though, which is nice.

Great capture of detail and muted color.
