Ordo you forgot to close crop the hair, blur out the background photo and remove the fake flowers. Other than that, and the washed out area of his face, not bad. The Lucis effect actually brings out details which arent readily visible in the original pic. So the lack of details in your version is because they arent there in my original.

Bynx,
You're probaly going to show us the door for our support of the original but I agree with Vanessa. Ordo's treatment is a good compromise.Then again, art form is really about personal preferences with some rules thrown in.
I totally agree with you that the frame in the background isn't distracting enough to warrant cloning or similar treatment.

When it's all said and done, beautiful character portrait.

We are all here to learn and help if we can. What a boring world it would be if everyone agreed with me. Its differences that makes me look twice at things and perhaps agree with myself on a compromise. Ive seen numerous HDR shots and their originals and to me, no comparison. The HDR versions are way better. I feel the same for the shot of Bob although Ordo's treatment was much better than the original and comparable to my version. Thanks to all.
