i mostly agree with leuallen's assesment. the only point in question would be having removed the double chin. it does make him look better, but i wouldnt really be comfortable doing that unless specifically asked to do so.

i also like the idea of a better background.

and, just as a fashion tip to your friend, he shld comb his hair more flat on top. he's got a nice head of hair, but he has a long/tall rectangular face and the extra height of the hair exaggerates this. in other words, lose the 'kramer'

nice job, everyone!

Tanja,

I think that looks absolutely terrific. This gentleman was running for congress, but was unsuccessful. I blame myself entirely for this, due to my poor levels adjustment and horrid over-sharpening ( Just kidding...) Still, I'm sure he'd like to have your version. Can I forward it? BTW, nice website.

Kraellin,

Funny you'd mention the "Kramer" hair. The original had a very dark shadow behind the hair, and it was difficult for me to distinguish between hair and shadow. When making my selection of his hair line, I created a temporary levels adjustment layer to add contrast, but it only worked to a degree, and I wound up having to make a few assumptions and guesses.

Ken

Hi Ken,
thank you very much for your comment! I appreciate it so much!
I'd be honored to please you/your friend with my version. Let me know how it looks on the writing desk :-). And also thanks for the comment on my site

If I can be of any help let me know.
Best regards to you all, Tanja

My apologies... When I said "running for congress", I meant "council". Not quite as high profile!

Ken
