    Nice shot. Exposure, focus and pose are great! I think both images however could benefit from increased contrast and sharpening. I have included a cropped example for your assessment.

    thanks dan! i like your crop. I see some halos around the head as far as sharpening goes. I usually only boost contrast when its a higher ISO but may play around with it! Thanks so much for the ideas and thoughts! regards

  8. jonathan, great capture...but they both looked like they needed a little bit of levels adjustment to bring back some clarity...here are my attempts at both the color and bw images:

    John, thanks so much for working on these! I do like the pop added by the levels adjustment and the texture of light it seems to add in the black and white. I am still a little unsure on the eyes though as I like the eyes better in the original. I may also create a layer mask and just work the levels on james while leaving the background untouched. Hmm ideas ideas

    thanks so much for the help here john
