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.

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. #3681728
