To be honest Barry , I like the natural feel of your shot more than Tim's ribbon shot. Great work.

8 - I like that it is such a close crop to show me the details in his face, just wish for more clarity to see the textures, etc.

Looks great, Barry. The edit turned out fantastic. You should have a lot of pride in this shot regardless of the score. Ok, sorry for the horrible pun. :) I'm quite interested to see the final score, though, too!

The final edit came out well. You held back a bit on the strong golden tones and made the fantastic eye detail into the star of the shot. (No vote, comment only)

Brilliant shot. Processing is just right , not overdone. Color and tones are pefect. Well may be just a tiny tad crisper in the eyes. Overall an almost perfect shot, well done (no vote)
