Fantastic shot, I like the layering and textures. Could you elaborate a little on the "Infrared Modification" ? I've been trying to achieve a similar effect but I don't think I've heard of this technique you're using.

Wow!!! This is the first time I've seen this photo. You said in your description that you need to grow but I'd say you're pretty well grown already! :) Fabulous image, and a well-deserved win.

Fredy, wow, I beautiful shot- to me, there are three keys to the success of this image:

1) lighting- using off-camera side light gave the subject shape & deminsion (as opposed to on-camera flash)

2) the subject's mood & pose- he is comfortable, relaxed, and regal

3) the photoshop techniques are not overblown or over done- they add to the feel & an essential, yet smooth and well-mastered.

Great job.
