My son wanted a little self renewal so he decided it was time for a new haircut. Don't worry, he only had this long enough for a few pictures. Monolight, supressed flash used for shot and edited in PS 7.

I love your photo, Gary!
Great composition, funny, excellent b/w.
If you add some contrast and brightness to it, it will be an award winning shot.
Great job! #1032338
