Thanks for the comments guys.

@simple, this shot was subject to extensive post processing, and on this basis i wouldn't know where to start with regards a workflow. I have been considering producing a tutorial but I'm to busy at the moment. If you have any specific questions on post processing then by all means pm me or ask on my blog. I'm always willing to help where possible :-)

@lesmore49, this response is easy...i walk up and ask them! ;-)

Perfect, my friend! It's a joy to follow the expressive features and meaning underneath. I'd even call it human landscape... Btw thanks for the good advice of asking the subject not to smile for a more dramatic shot!

ha ha Bahadir, a simple secret to share unlike the labrynthine complexities of post processing!

Incidentally, the piece of advice to which i relate concerning smiling is second hand, the quote is from a famous english photographer who for the life of me i cannot remember!! agghhh!

His work is great...very very famous, used to shoot candid shots at british seaside resorts......as soon as a i remember I'll let you know!

Good you asked him! A great face. Stupendous portrait, although too much bright blue in those eyes for my taste. They came out kind of 'virtual', in contradiction with the hyper realistic face and beard.

Can't help but say that it looks like the "Die Hard" series is really starting to wear on Bruce Willis....lol. A really great photo.
