Good evening. It has been a while since I have been able to go out and take some pictures that I really like. I think this one came out perfect.

I am sure the focus is spot on. I think the crop also works for this photo. What I am not sure of if the color cast. I still struggle with this and often my photos are looking to warm.. I think the lighting is also good here but I at times 2nd guess myself if i should bump up the levels some. The bridge of his nose I think is close to being blown so I don't want to over do it..

So anything you can see that I can fix? I would like to use this photo on my website.. Thanks for the CC. :)

Composition & lighting are fine. As for the color cast, I don't think it's too warm. Any cooler and it'll look too cold.

If you decide to increase the brightness, add a curves adjustment layer and mask the nose to prevent it from being blown out.

I agree with Stephen put it in the finished folder everything looks spot on I would call it done and walk away I know some times I can over tweak a photo. Great shot.
