@trainerKEN, exposure and contrast are spot on and your description of what you are seeing on your Dell display is identical to what I'm seeing.

Ken bam! Great look and toning.
Is the light behind his head spill from the strip, and did you paint around it? I haven't figured out how to get that look without hiding a flash with annoying modifiers behind the person - you nailed it.
There is a difference between a shaky or out-of-focus photograph and a snapshot of clouds and fog banks. - Schrödinger

Ken: I've admired "Gary" from previous page for some time and wanted to comment on it but was short on time. Now when I found the time there is new 'Gary' even better than previous one even thou I thought was not possible.
Your use of light is masterful. Model is striking but illumination is pure art. Bravo!

Awwww thanks, what you see behind him, the fake fog was added in Photoshop using overlay. There wasn't a 2nd light

Ken, "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" is spectacular! I know I've mentioned before, but your portraits have gone to another level from the first ones I remember.
