I love the intensity in the model's eyes. The light, tone, and contrast are in such harmony in this photo!
yes wonderful expression and beautiful high key portrait
Something about that facial expression: Is he mad? Thinking? Seductive? Bugged by a chip on his shoulder (aka 'the tattoo'). The rest of him is relaxed and the balance & background mirror his shape nicely. That face tho- that pulls you in. Well done!
