Ok, so B&W is my all time favorite and this is a most wonderful B&W! Tones are right on. BUT WOW, your model is beyond "gorgeous"! I am sure he could be every woman's dream. Fabulous portrait, Michael! All drooling aside... You really do the most incredibly beautiful captures on both male and female! #4681279

Thank you Dianna. I also love B&W. This was actually taken in front of a green screen for another purpose so I had to go with B&W with only one drawback, the loss of blue in his eyes. #4681321
