I love it - the expression (makes me smile ), the exposure, the catch lights in the eyes, his clothing, the background, the vignette, I think you did an outstanding work here!

Took the words right out of my mouth, classic and well done Bob. I sharpened the interior of the eyes just a touch more, dodged the whites at about 40% opacity and felt that his bottom lip was a touch light so I did a little burning at 10% opacity on the bottom lip. Very subtle changes, not sure they are even visible The 1st is your original posted image. Barbara

Yes, while we stand still

Thanks for your thoughts, they return to the Netherlands next month (likely for two years) - going to miss them.

Regards,

Bob

Thanks Barbara,

One of those right-time, right-place moments that makes photography such a joy.

Appreciate your thoughts on changes, frankly cannot detect differences on this laptop, but not to worry, I do not think there is such a thing as a "nit-free" image

Best,

Bob

Sounds like a good excuse to holiday in europe and take many sweet photos!

Also, perhaps consider darkening the background with a gamma bump and lightening his face with an exposure bump to add a bit more visual pop.
