I'm not sure what else to CC on, but it looks like you did a nice job witht he flat light part of the assignment. I too am struggling with the PP part, but I'm hoping the more I learn about the light and getting a better shot SOOC, the less editing I will have to do.

the only thing that really stood out to me, besides the things everyone else mentioned, is it having the yellow cast, and i think part of that has to do with the chair behind him. you could always mask the chair out and do a color adjustment layer on him to take some of the yellow out... also, before you shoot, maybe do a custom wb at first and that will help with any color issues later...

nice job!! i'd like to see this one in b&amp;w. it would give it a nice moody feel....

Hi Peano, Nice job getting a good pic of Mr. Petulant! The catchlights are good in his eyes but I think the focus is slightly off as his forward eye (right when looking at it) is not as sharp maybe as it could be. I don't really notice the circles under his eyes as being that dark. I wonder if maybe you should lighten it slightly.

I think you did a very nice job. You say you don't know much about pp but you got a great shot right out of the camera and that is a goal I am striving for.<img border='0' src='/graphics/mbicons/smilies_v2/thumbup.gif'>

I think you have already got some great CC! I did notice the OOF eye which was due to have him slightly turned - I've done this before too. Your flat lighting look great with very little shadowing on the face and nice catchlights<img border='0' src='/graphics/mbicons/smilies_v2/smile.gif'> Good job!

Hi, there! I've stared and stared at this and as far as the flat lighting part goes...you've got it! Very little shadowing.
<br>
I did notice his right eye is a little soft, but that's to be expected because his head is turned. The image might also be a little bit too much on the warm side (too much yellow?). I like your composition.

Great job!

Peeking in for just a second. Quick CC here, I'll try to come back tomorrow after work and look again.

I agree with tweaking the WB just a bit. That's my guess where the color issue is coming from, as well as the slight underexposure (I'm just learning how to fix color, myself). I think you definately did great with getting flat light here. There's just a hint of shadow to the side of his nose to help define it, with a slight definition shadow under his chin.
<br>
Your catchlights look good here, too.
<br>
Sorry so short, I'm beat today <img border='0' src='/graphics/mbicons/smilies_v2/smile.gif'> I'll have a look tomorrow night again.! Good job!

This was shot in Manual with my Canon DRebel XT using my 28-135mm IS 3.5-5.6 lens–focal length was 56mm.

ISO 1600 SS 1/125 Aperture f4.5

My pping was minimal because I'm not really sure what I'm doing. I did some correcting for white balance and some sharpening and ran Noiseware. What I would correct if I knew how to do it in PSE 6 would be is to get rid of the dark circles under his eyes, correct the yellow areas under his jawline and on his neck, and there appear to be two almost blown areas on either side of his nose.
