Nicely done - I like the Hurley-esque lighting and composition.

I think you nailed the lighting here. Super subtle and nice rim light coming in from the right. The catchlights are great.

This is a great shot! I like the lighting setup. It really works.

If I were to be really picky to give you an idea of how it MIGHT be improved, I'd like a little more squinch in the eyes and SLIGHTLY more friendly in the mouth.

Sweet shot!

Yep, you right! A bit more emotion could make this shot excellent. Thank you =)

nicely done... looking at the Catch Light in the Eyes did you use a version of a Ring Light but more squarish?

I used Peter Hurley`s style setup - in this case 3 LED panels arranged in a L bracket. Actually there was a square and i used right LED for back light to get more depth and separate from black background.
