Pretty good. Might be a hot spot on the forehead, and it is an odd shape almost. What kind of modifier did you use? Head might be a bit too far to the side, bringing eyes back a bit too close to the edge maybe. The tight crop is good to me. The color treatment is a personal choice, as is the vignette.

Maybe that will get others to chime in and help out.

Thanks for your pointers.. Regarding light modifier (see image).My homemade
`flashbender`is simply a de-constructed `chip-container` which took around
five minutes to make with the added bonus of a ready silvered wall...!!!
although I added a more reflective one.

Regards ..Gordon.

Interesting modifier, but that begs the question... how were the chips?

Being the cheapskate I am the container was retrieved from a builders skip.
However, I am presently designing a `collapsible model` which I just may have to fund myself...!!!!!

I like it
Perhaps a little more light in the right eye and get light off axis to the right to get a little less flat lighting?
Great expression.

Maybe a testament to `Nikon`s 60mm f2.8 lens` because I don`t honestly
recall adding sharpening to the image...
