Great lighting IMO. Composite? If so, nice work! Not sure it fits the typical business headshot, but still a nice headshot none-the-less.

Yes, it's a composite, and thank you! My goal was to do something a little different than the corporate plain background headshot.

It's very nicely done.. However doesn't really say "business" to me.. it's more cartoony then professional..

But it depends what kind of vibe you want your clients to receive I guess...

Boy I don't see "cartoony" when I look at it, possibly "cinematic" but I really like it either way. It conveys a real sense of power and confidence.
Love your composites, Battleborn!

I work in creative so strict professionalism wasn't or isn't the goal of this image

Very much agree. If the OP does anything for a living besides a lawyer, this photo is a miss because the folded arms and the building in the background send a very aggressive, uninviting impression.

maybe so.. But it sends mixed messages to a potential client..

Yes you look confident, but approachable.. not so much, because of the folded arms. I do alot of work for corporate headshots,, and folded arms like that is a big no-no. Although it's VERY nicely processed... It doesn't say "creative photo manipulator" to me really.
