Dimitri: A Soldiers Story

Hi guys,

Just finished working on the shot below.

I met Dimitri whilst out shooting in my local town. He used to be a Ukranian soldier, who after almost being killed in South Ossetia, moved to the UK, where he has lived and worked ever since.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Very nice head shot and subject. I found his eyes too saturated.
