Not bad at all. Think personally, maybe one side of his face should have the red, but that's personally, look at my profile, I aint a pro lol. One thing I can see is the light on his head, bare flash or a missed edit? Love the work on your profile by the way, especially that guy with the Weight Ropes in the air, epic photo.

Thanks for your input! I tend to stick with even edge lights and colors. I think I've tried to do the one side but something felt off to me. Sometimes it works though. The light on his head is from the hair light above. It's just a highlight on his hair. I didn't even think about retouching it out. Thanks for the kind words about my work!

I personally love it, especially all your other work. A level I am not at yet, but hopefully with enough work and practise I will. So these are very motivational to me.

It really is all about practice! So yes you will get there! Thanks again for your comments :)

Well done. I miss getting creative with studio strobes. This makes me want to break them out again. Once again, fantastic work!
