This is pretty good work. I see that you've stepped up your lighting and skin work a notch. I like the detail you've managed to keep in the skin.
Jide Alakija: Funny thing is that this shot was taken almost a year ago. I think I need to shoot more portraits. Detail was really a function of a good lens (which is now damaged and a good RAW conversion via ACR, I haven't really done anything in Photoshop to this apart from toning.

Small nit would be for the bit of shirt visible in the lower right. You might as well darken it a bit since it adds nothing to the shot besides a little distraction. Not a deal breaker though smile
Jide Alakija: I actually don't agree with you on the shirt. I think that it helps frame the face. That nit is a bit too much I'm afraid, it takes the whole natural-ness of the shot away.
Beautiful light and processing. They bring out the skin tones beautifully.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Michael.
Terrific skin textures ... and you have worked the lighting delightfully.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Rich!
Cracking portrait shot.
Jide Alakija: THanks Michael
