    Not 1 mm short of "Portraiture" ..and a super incredible one at that. The background is "studio quality" and it appears you may have shot him there! His "pose" seems to be further confirmation of that. A sharpness throughout that displays his beauty VERY well. "National Geographic"!! KUDOS, Michael!!!
