I did this shot for a contest at a local studio to get a portrait of the owner for a magazine article about him in Italy in his home town.

This is my attempt at it and the only one that does not have him with a photo related item.

No post done other then color, exposure and some mild curves. I welcome any and all comments and thoughts.

That's one penetrating look!

Not really liking the oversaturation around the face.

Personally I think it's a little too bright. I think either dial down the lights just a bit, or move him further away from the BG. His neck and sides of his face are too hot and almost blending into the white background.

I'm still having some trouble shooting on a pure white BG, so this is something I've been trying to work on myself.

I'm sorry the image doesn't work. His face is overexposed and having him standing in front of the white exposed background made the facial exposure even worse.

It is certainly a very commanding image!!!

What I am not really liking is that your two light sources seem to have been placed lower than his head level. This lights up the undersides of the eyebrows and chin - ans as this is something that in nature you very rarely see, this light direction immediately looks "unusual". Try the lights in a similar position but higher than the eye line. It will still make a very commanding image, but with a more natural shadow/highlight.

Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.
