Carrie- When it comes to portrait work this one ranks right up there with the best. I just love the look you have accomplished here. Starting with the background, I love the colors and the textured look of it. Love the black around the edges. Then there is the handsome young man with his hat. I love the look, the skin tones, and especially his eyes. Beautiful colors, a work of art my friend.
Have a wonderful day and take care.
