Male beauty shot critique

This was a golden hour shot with an vintage Pentax 135mm on a Fuji XE2, shot close to maximum aperture. It's actually the first beauty shot I took.

I found that if I sharpened the eyes then the picture became too intimidating, so I made them much softer than usual. I'm interested in people's general comments and advice on the shot and...


I have the opportunity to shoot with this awesome blogger, all the way from LA to San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Feel free to let me know if you like it or what I can work on to improve. I look forward to any responses I receive....

Alienation part II

hey guys, I recently did this editorial and just wanted to share it here because it is always interesting to know what others think of your work.
I usually don't do any retouching this heavy, because in the european market where I work it is not appreciated anymore (baby hairs and stray hairs are really okay, they add to the realism) but...
