oh damn, here's another!

this time trying a more subtle look, suits the picture, but none the less some of the same stuff I like to go for. My biggest critique is the shadow clippings in the upper left hand; wish I would have used a hair light or rim light.
WHAT YOU THINK?!

I found the highlights on the cheek to be distracting. Considering the suggestive position of his right index finger, that's probably a good thing.

Hey, this is art. What does it matter?

It was in reference to a photo of someone who appears to be picking his nose (or about to pick his nose) which some would consider repulsive and others would defend "as art."
