    The halo's are probably caused by either excessive sharpening or using the highlight/shadow tool, easily fixed by using the blur tool on no. 1 or 2 at 500% magnification. Have arrowed the areas most affected...
    Ah! got it. Yeah I think i sharpened this low res version too much before I saved it to post up here. Thanks again!

      I really like the overall color (gold tone) of the image. I also think you did an excellent job maintaining the tonal differences between the subject and background, especially with the shirt. The contrast difference could easily have been lost. It's funny how sensitive our eyes are to those things and how important it is to maintain, even when very subtle.

      I also don't want to overlook all the other hard work you put into cleaning up the other small but important issues. Job well done.

      I would like to see just a few small things cleaned up some more.
      - the subtle wrinkle in the tee shirt by the V neck on his right side;
      - the small reflection on the sun glasses on his far right edge;
      - better defining the far right edge of the sun glasses against the background (just a very small amount);
      - the larger reflection/catch on the sun glasses by his nose.

      That's it for me. Otherwise, I think the image would hold up well in any printed media, as well as in a larger format. I do agree with Gary, in that a good scrubbing in your RAW editor is always a good first step.
