    I'm not experienced in portrait photography but I think the originals are far better than the after pics. The last after pic looks like an old woman.

    Definitely like the before shots better. I'm not a huge fan of major processing though. Just my style. Cool to see a Fro fan though. :D

    I also prefer the before photos, but I do think the post Agent and DJ are cool. Both versions of Agent are my favorite of you collection here.

    Altered and over "retouched" images are best left to repairing poor technique damage on irreplaceable images, not as an expression of "art."

    My two cents. Not my style.

    Many of the portraits on your website are striking, you do know technique.

    No worries, as human-being, we all have different personal tastes and I do understand that. Until one point of a time, we will find a style which distinguishes you from everybody else which makes people remember "Oh, this photo reminds me of Davidhuy's style". And I'm happy being different even though my style is not meant for everyone, especially those true-believers in the power of photography!

    What I see looks quite good. No complains from me :)

    Like them because they are different or out of the ordinary. Just keep at it.
