Nice PP. Wish we had more eyes here.Catchlights are the king in a portrait and imply life. I would lighten any highlight areas within his face to give more depth. Crop is kinda funky- it does not engage, it pulls away. Heres a crop and the way I see your subject.

It seems somehow we lost the option to post an image to a reply. I have it and you can email me at bob@bobmillerphoto.com

Hi Phil. I agree with Bob - I assume his suggested crop renders a more vertical image? That is what I had asked for from the portrait of your son last week, and at that time you mentioned your wildlife-based habit of capturing wider than normal so as not to miss anything, which is brilliant.

But Photoshop makes trying on new image ratios free of cost, so I think a vertical crop here is worth reviewing and posting.

Actually I do feel like the aged wisdom of this subject is enough to carry any framing you choose, so congratulations on this capture Phil.

A vertical crop would be interesting, but I agree with Patrick, there is enough character and wisdom in the face to carry this picture any way..
