How the heck did I miss bringing you down to Toronto when I was either Program Chairman or Branch Chairman of Central Portrait, PPO during my time with PPO/PPOC before I retired in 2000? Not sure but I think among some of my things I still have the Frank Kristian book too as do some of my friends. A good book on Classic Portraiture by Joe Zeltsman is available online and should be part of any photographers arsenal. Anything that can be read done by Monte Zucker is worth viewing and there are many others.

Another tool I have found to be very valuable in evaluating personal images may sound strange...but try it.
Flip the image upside down. You will no longer see the image as you "think" it looks(or less emotionaly attached), asince it looks so different you will see the flow of the image etc much clearer, etc

The upside-down method is very good. Back in the day (in school) we tended to use view cameras which create and upside-down image on the ground glass. This made it easier to see the comppsitional lines in the image and detect any distractions as well. Nowadays with reflex cameras you sometimes pay more attention to other factors and oftentimes do not notice the compositional or tonal distractions as much.
