    Default Thoughts ...

    Hi Larry;

    I'd suggest moving the subject layer to the opposite side so he is on the `1st quadrant and not the 4th. The contrast is a bit low so I'd up that a little. There doesn't seem to be a lot of light in his eyes and it also looks like there are bags under his eyes. The stroke around the subject layer seems to be soft. It would look better with a crisp 1 pixel stroke.

    All those things would make it better for a client or a studio display print. I don't see this for competition though.

    Here come those pesky "whys" again. Why is he sitting in that chair with what appears to be a skateboard under his chin?

    Anything is possible...however, among other things, I'm also looking for the print to show some life...as in crisp highlights/deep darks...and I'm not seeing them.
    I wish I had a recommendation of some B&Ws or monochromes to show you what a high quality image would show...maybe someone else knows where a few samples(of portraiture) could be viewed.

    thanks for the input. I am thinking of changing the title to "Riding the Storm Out".
