I like it. The tops of the shoulders look a bit dark.
Getting hard to offer critique since I think one issue is choosing the best of the many fine iterations.
Was there a specific question?

Thanks Scott,

Nothing specific, another approach on perhaps an over-used series.

What you do not know is you provided the motivation in your comment and question re Lazlo's "Chinatown" post on BWV. I ran down that thread and applied the techniques in ACR as Lazlo described. To my surprise, the ACR toolset preformed much better (albeit the same engine) than its LR twins. Further exploration and study coming! Also of help I found an extension on Adobe's site that easily allows viewing a layer in ACR as a smart object - very convenient tool, no fuss, no bother, it just works.

Regards,

Bob

Kaden,

Thank you for your very generous compliment. You've caused me to reflect that, yes, interests and direction have changed over the years, this particular style being the most recent. Still work to do on it and I need to keep an open mind about alternatives - not to be a one-trick pony

And, I think we've all learned, improved, and altered approaches over the years, certainly yourself included. One of the things that makes FM interesting.

Regards,

Bob

Yup, much better. The darkened background with isolating light on his eyes/face works well.

Still suspect a bit more beard and chest would be a slightly stronger composition.

Thanks Karen,

Need to check the original - last I visited him, he'd trimmed his beard substantially. Glad you like it.
