Re: Low Key C&C Welcome

I think I like the original one best, but I would do the eyes as above. The low key nature of the shot really doesn't require the back of his head lit up (left side of photo), and looks a little funky when it is. The highlight on the forehead could be toned down slightly I suppose, but I wouldn't eliminate it, and to be honest, I didn't notice it until it was mentioned in print. Nice to see some bright white in the photo for the token full dynamic range (although the rim on the shoulder and arms does it as well. The forehead rim light makes it real, whereas with it gone, the lighting doesn't seem consistent relative to the shoulder rim light, at least not after having seen the original...but this is all knit-picking.)

Overall a great photo as is, but better with the eyes done IMHO..
