I haven’t been too keen on black and white photography for a while but never say never. This image was OK as a color photo but converting it to black and white really worked. There is something about the lighting on his forehead and face that pops. I used a Lightroom 4 preset from David duChemin from a new book that I am now reading. More on the book and the author after I get finished with the book. I posted this image on 500px and was pleased that it made the Popular page.
