Any PP, or camera setting recommendation? For PP I boosted the contrast and sharpness in LR, might be corrected WB. Fee free to edit the picture yourself to show what you are talking about.
Thank you.

My suggestions:
Try a tighter crop and vignetting. Maybe brighten the image a little.

Here's what I came up with using LR3.

PHOTOBUCKET EMBEDDING IS DISABLED BY THIS MEMBER.
Photobucket sends ads instead of embedding photos from their free galleries.
Click the link (if available) below to see the image in a gallery page.

I took some saturation away. Added some contrast, exposure, clarity, and vignette. I also lighten up his eyes a little bit.

Let me know what you guys think.

I prefer the second attempt you have done. Much richer and draws you in more.

I couldn't decide which one I thought was better, so I did two edits.

Adjusted color, saturation, vibrance, highlights and levels.
