Why thank you! I was concerned on the exposure causing it to look muddy?

you could up the contrast (how did you turn it b/w?) but it's a really nice shot
Try silverFX Pro or something like that on it if you want to play with it more.

Yeah, I think it could use more contrast to make it pop a little. It's too middle gray.

Thanks for the compliment. I actually just hit the black and white button in Lightroom. I did recently purchase a bunch of black and white presets so I will have to play around with those as well.

Very nice, like the composition and agree about needing more contrast.

after you convert to B/W, play with the WB and tint also try pulling the individual color channels up/down to see how they affect the grays.

Great composition/pose. Agree it needs a bit more light and contrast.

Thanks for all the comments everyone. Finally got around to throwing some changes on this. Let me know if you think it's better.

Much better, it even brought out more depth to the image. Very nicely done.

Great job on the second conversion. He looks almost 3d in it now.

Thanks for the kind words! I raised the exposure, a touch more contrast, and sharpened the eyes a little more. The last thing that bothers my are the posts aren't perfectly straight but I'm not sure it affects the photo at all.
