Awesome portrait Emily! Magnificent lighting and once again those eyes! Love the title! I am assuming that is his name. That's my fathers name. Beautiful! Shannon~

WOW! What an OUTSTANDING portrait of your handsome man! I love how you've really worked the green - his eyes, the background, his coat - very well thought out and adds so much to the impact of the image! Just STUNNING clarity as well!

How did I miss this one? I was going back through entries and I'm glad I did, this is a winner for sure!! I love the rugid, very sexy I might add expression (you will have to show your husband all your comments, he'll get such an ego boost).
The clarity, the eyes, and the colours work all together for a fantastic work of art! Well done!!
