Very nice. I really like the tonality and depth of field.

Excellent shot, proving again that eye contact is not necessary for a powerful portrait. (I've been engaged in that argument many times over).

If it were mine, which it isn't, I'd probably drop the whites a bit across the nose and adjacent cheeks area to see if that would make the harsher blacks alongside less of a magnet for my eye. Just a thought from someone who knows little about portraiture, so consider the source. :)

What do you think of dropping the whites a little? I love this, but wonder if darker is better? S-
