Thanks! I admit the whole face should have been in the picture. But I love the editing of the pic. I just did some changes with the contrast in photoshop. I gained the contrast. Then I ran a black and white filter, and played with the contrast some more.

This is where the artist emerges. You present what you like and see if anyone agrees with you. If they dont, tough. But they can explain why and you might get some better insight for the next shot. If this were one of a series of facial shots of the guy it might fit in well. Otherwise if its just alone by itself, Im not sure if I'd hang this one. I do like the treatment.
