but at least you have hair :)
I like that you selectively coloured the LSU cap as it seems to be a big part of your life.
I also like the sharp eye. Let me know if you'd like a deeper critique on this.

You probably cannot critique harder than I did, eyes (esp the right) could be sharper, the black/white ratio could be stronger, and just the over all comp could be better.

As for the hat, I know selective coloring is basic, but it does show who I am as a LSU fan.

And as for the hair, it is all grey.. Like the saying goes, "Its better to turn grey, than to turn loose!"

We all have stuff about ourselves that we'd like to change. The cool thing about portraiture is that by choosing different angles we can often minimize what we'd like to change.
I shot weddings for years so I know this all too well. In this case, shooting from below was the wrong angle.
