I absolutely love this shot. I agree with senor_kasper... the perfect description is genuine, and you captured it perfectly.

Aeroguri, thanks for the comments. I will try it on the image as practice. I really liked the way 8th place looked also.

mpeters, the catchlights were produced by a 580 EXII shot into a 32" silver umbrella at camera left. This was my first shoot using that set-up.

post challenge critique... a crop of just the face processed more, make the eyes pop, tried it in black/white or a bit of desaturation or color alteration, that lucis art look or nicely sharpened.. might have gotten higher scores from DPC voters. (See 8th place in this challenge for an example of what I mean) Personally, I gave it an 8, I liked it, but most voters love that processed look. :)

I like how his hat creates a sparkle in his eyes by helping direct the light.
