    Your use of high contrast really brings out the essence of your subjects which you have always captured with genius

    Most intense in lightbox!.Even with the high contrast of the clothing, my eyes go right to the striking face!

    Love the highlight on the chin and the position of the arms. I see Native American similarities in the facial structure.
