    I like it. The hotspot on his forehead is a little distracting to me though.

    I like it!

    the composition feels a little weird to me...the pelf and angles.

    the lighting's pretty good though minus the hotspot on his head. it's often difficult to light black folks though, so I understand

    not the left side, but the right side is completely PS'd in. the two side panels are fake, as well as the ground, and piano.

    Tetsuo, i used cybersyncs. No experimentation with CLS in a actual shoot yet.

    thx guys. I tried killing the hotspot, i dunno but i think it adds something. sort of why i left it in. Ill up the orginal here in a second so you can see how much post on teh right side i did.

    i like the lighting and dont mind the hot spot.
    not sure about the posing, hope to see more from the set

    the pp is good, only thing i would change is the ground.. it doesnt seem to match the diagonal line from the original (look at the wooden panel that goes across).

    definately a pic that i'd imagine to see in a magazine or on the cover! good job
