I agree with them all..this portrait is amazing. I am trying to teach myself to edit photos in order to make the best print possible. Would you mind sharing what settings, lighting, and editing tools/steps you used to create this image? I'm hoping if I ask enough questions I'll eventually catch on to what effects different editing tools have on a photo. Thanks so much!

Thank you so much everyone. This is a complete surprise to me as I really didn't expect this to win the grand prize. This has been in my gallery for quite sometime and I believed it deserves a second life so I entered it again in the competition without any expectation. Thank you to everyone who commented. And thank you to the judges.

Salamat and Mabuhay.
