My favourite portrait...

I'm pretty happy with this one! The glow from the computer screen allowed me to use a blue filter on the B&W conversion, which brought out the face structure and complexion. Red and orange filters look terrible on this man. Yellow ones look flat. He's a blue-filter guy, but it's not that often you come across the right lighting.

The shadow under the chin was a howling bitch to remove. I probably could have done a better job, but at this point I'm afraid of breaking it.

UPDATE - He hates this portrait, and I've been told in no uncertain terms to park the blue filter. :-(
