    The lighting and expression have a lot of impact.

    Very cool portrait David... nice strong pose with good eye contact... and very nicely exposed too!
    Did you set the white balance before taking this... or did you fix it in the RAW conversion?

    [] Thanks!
    [] None too shabby Jason ;-)
    [] Thanks :) Allan's idea to pose next to the candle, I just made the most of it.
    [] :)
    [] Fixed in post Paul. I didn't have an handy grey card on me and the WB is very custom (candlelight tends to be rather red).
