Yeah, I'm making that funny, silly growly noise in my throat again, going OMG and Wow and stuff. I cannot think of a single thing I would do differently with this. There is juuuuuuusssst enough separation in his hat. He has the eyes of a stone killer (Wyatt Earp was one, you know; historians are not at all sure he was the good guy, just the one who didn't die). I would not want to meet this man in a dark alley or a sunlit, dusty street!

One of your better presentations Mr. Chinn, a real winner here...an extreme nitpick tone the two short right tuffs of hair the same as the long right piece..almost too bright as to distract.

I think you did well to have this shot absolutely sharp. You also really controlled the exposure very nicely. He certainly looks menacing, and I think that was your point. Beautiful.

I don't know how you do what you do, but it's magic. I can't believe the skin on these characters; they must smoke four packs of unfiltered Lucky Strike before lunch.

One of my favorites of your dark-side portraits. Looks authentically period-style in presentation, which multiplies the impact. What I like best: how you made the eyes "connect" with the viewer in spite of being in heavy shadow.

I like it! Only other thing to do might be to age it, make the paper look like it is ripped from the pages of an old book.

Thank you Chuck !!! The silly growly noise in your throat can be heard for miles and it is much appreciated. While this one is a favorite of mine, it encourages and motivates me to wanting more, and to seek out into unknown territory, only to hit a brick wall. Although, it is self rewarding to discover there is no wall at all, just the little pea between the ears. Thanks again !!!
Dave
