This is a beautiful portrait. You managed to frame the subject well with it looking into "space" on the left. Good colour balance and nice and sharp. Well done.

Hi Chi,
Flawless composition and framing on this portrait. Your exposure looks to be perfect. Beautiful saturated colors, and the detail is razor sharp. Perfect OOF backround has him standing out very well. A great shot!

Hi, Chi.
Beautiful ara portrait. Excellent colors and DOF. Well composed and sharp.
