Re: Could you critic that!

The color looks good, but some of the highlighting is blown out. I suggest that you take the overall brightness down a totch or two.

Clipped ..

You have written quite a long message for me, and I would like to thank you for that. As you said I have still a lot to learn from others, me and Photoshop. And people like you are the ones who make me want to continue to improve my skills.
You said I need to accept the critics; I am already trying to accept all the kinds of critics, even from my friends who do not know anything about Photoshop. And from the ones who know or pretend to know Photoshop in this forum. I am not afraid about critics; they are telling me what is wrong and what is good about my job.
Here is a picture from the 6 I have received from a model. He asked me to edit his portfolio.
I like your work altough I am not fully aware of your direction or preferences. I offer a critique only if you are trying to keep the final look realistic. With what you have posted, be aware of the clipped darks and highlights. If not, they will print as solid black and white with no detail at all. Refine the detail and coloring of the eyes. For me, this is a must as 'it's the eyes that say it all.'
But, as previously stated, it's all subjective though so I would encourage you to stay involved with forums such as this and continue to post examples of your work with the receptive attitude that you seem to have.

Speaking of subjective and as an example, I used your project and moved him away from the wall by removing the shadow on his left side, removed the color cast on his shirt by setting a color sampler and using curves to balance the RGB values to 245,245,245, used Shadow/Highlights to bring out the details of his hair, etc. Again, just to my tastes.

Cheers!

It's a matter of taste, RS. And yours is certainly different from mine.

I would say it looks like it to me but would have to see a higher res to know if anything is over done.
