    This is a fantastic Shot Vern!!! the only thing I would do is take the lasso tool and with about a 80% feather and lasso his face, then with that selected use the Curves tool and tone down the highlights. This is an easy way to make adjustments on any bright or dark spots in your photograph:-)

    You have balanced the flash well with the ambient light avoiding that ‘photoshopped’ look! Nice one! Dave

    Great comments David! It’s funny how obvious those things are after you point them out… and not so much before. ;-) I definitely do need to study up on masculine poses… it’s next on my list! Thanks for the feedback.
