I love it. Very dramatic shot, with good lighting and a subject that inspires respect.

Wonderful portrait! Is it his glasses that make the eyes look soft, or the reflections, or was the DOF so narrow that it only got the mustache/nose? Either way, I think the overall FEEL of the image is spot-on. This really does the subject justice.

Really well done Matt. Great lighting. I might like to see a bit more DOF to get the hand on his axe in focus, but great regardless.

Great portrait !
My guess, his right eye is rather sharp, glasses make it look soft (left eye is just not within DOF).
Would like to see more DOF on the hand as well, or at least tone it down ( burn ... ouch, I meant as in "dodge and burn" !)

Stunning. Do you mind sharing your lighting setup.

Nice portrait, Matt. What I like is the composition and the expression on his face. The lighting gives us a good "mood" too.

I see a problem in the DOF. You used f1.8 @ 1/125 at 85mm. I see the OOF hand as an issue, but also parts of the face are drifting into OOF. The tab of his coat is nice and sharp, but it's the eyes you want sharp, and they are farther away from the camera. You can't get all that in at f1.8. And you may be front focused at bit.

I think you needed to stop down a bit more or re-arrange the composition to get the hand and eyes a similar distance from the lens.

I used a 50" Westcott Apollo from the right, a Einstein with a 11" sports reflector and 15 degree grid from the top left, and two CTO gelled speedlights in the cab.

Wow. Such colors.

Only thing that could improve it to my eye is to increase DOF a bit. I like the OOF hand, but the flappy bit of fabric under the back of the helmet is distracting.
