G'day Gareth,

Nice lighting, though I find the shadow lines a bit distracting, this is possible due to the portrait being a head and shoulders shot. I have seen where such shadows actually enhance an image because its more of an environmental portrait of a sort where its more than just a full body portrait but includes some wall and floor with the shadows and this way it was less distracting, but there is more of them.

Still a nice shot all the same.

Keep up the good work.

Regards,
Craig

Hi Horizon I agree with the point of maybe showing some wall to set the scene, this is the original and the lines were added in post as I felt it needed something extra but good point and thanks

Gareth.
