Great lighting, and I love the crystal-clear details! My only suggestion is to watch out for what the lense on the right side of the photo is creating a double line of the face. But that's just a minor nit-pick. Nice image!

Nice expression! Really like how the desaturated tones add to the slightly demented mood of the image. What was the lighting setup? Just a single softbox?

I think a saturated color would have looked better with the black background. Doesn't seem to be enough contrast and feels washed out...

a more interesting crop than some others. Nice lighting and expression.

Good use of soft box.... Good portrait. I'm pretty sure this would be considered advanced editing.

Nice composition. There is too much highlight on the forehead.
