    That is trippy man, works very well for it's over the topness, he looks like he's not too sure of things, especially without his glasses...

    I don't find this ugly at all and actually like this a lot (even more if the top of the head was not cropped off).
    The lighting and tones on this one is very different to the other two. Was this shot on film?

    The clothes speak about the personality as well- maybe a bit of a player? Quite a humorous fella?

    The style of this photo is quite similar to R...... nah, I may be letting the cat out of the bag
    Lighten up!

    Like it. But the clothes (which I love) overpower the portrait - almost as if they are the subject and the head is background. Neither a bad or good thing - I dunno what you wanted to achieve.

    I like it, as commented a bit trippy with that herring bone. My own inclination would have been to crop at just below the top shirt button which would have drawn the face into sharper attention. While the herring bone goes a long way to letting the viewer form a characture opinion of the subject it gives too much input to this opinion.

    Cool shot, Paul.

    Where do you meet such interesting looking people?

    I would maybe would have liked a slightly shorter focal length. The face looks a little '2D' and flat with the longer focal length you have used for this shot. What was it shot at?
