The red looks oversaturated to me and your subject is in the dead center of the frame. May want to observe the rule of thirds here. Just a suggestion.

You need a light meter for high key work like that. It's completely blown out ;)

The picture doesn't embed for some reason (external link)

The guy has a striking gaze. I like the lights too, but I'd dim the rim light on our left. Quite a bit of that side of his face is pure white.

I fixed the link. It's a self portrait. I was testing out a DIY softbox. The hard light on camera left is just a bare flash maybe 10 feet away from me. I was too excited to get the softbox adjusted to monkey with the fill light. :p

Use a reflector next time to achieve a softer effect. The right (subject left) portion is nicely exposed and the tones are decent.

You're using a brolly-box, yes? It looks like your flashes are gelled differently, or at least have different hues.

The kicker was too hot and too broad. the kicker should not encroach onto the side of the nose because it makes the nose look wide.

Subject left is a softbox I built. Flash through a sheet of white silky poplin fabric. Subject right is standard, flash, no diffusion. I now own a big 50 something inch westcott 5in1 reflector. I'll be playing with that soon.

If memory serves I had a very light purple gel on the bare flash...
