This is my husband - he reluctantly agreed to model for me :) I took three sets of images, checking them all out on the computer and refining, trying to pick out what we both liked best in terms of angle, perspective, shirt, glasses/no glasses, etc. I have been thrilled with the comments and the way the score has held this week, especially considering the competition. Here we are at the next-to-last day and it looks as if this will take over the next-to-top spot in my profile. Thank you.

Well, we dropped steadily over the last 15 votes Sunday, but we did fine :) Thanks!

Had two comments suggesting a crop that was not quite as close might be better. Here's the best alternative I have: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/135000-139999/138630/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1031333.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/135000-139999/138630/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1031333.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

You have one green eye one blue, yeah yeah you've heard it 100 times before, I'm guessing this will ribbon, partly b/c it's what the voters will like, not really my style, though have to say done well.

I wonder if a different comp or crop wouldn't make his head look so large.

I really like this one and have rated it high. I think it is the expressive eyes that draws me in. It does appear to be a little soft, but I don't mind. Hope it does well for you.

I like this - lots of character, lots of intelligence and a little bit of whimsy in the expression. Again with the chopped off top of the head - I really have a thing about that. In any case, good color control and the overall impact is high as the image is very interesting.
