Scott Roeben submitted this image, no additional data provided. The composition is nice and the expression is very genuine. The skin tone is not in synch with the rest of the image and the hair looks over processed. There are a lot of different ways to process an image and if going for something that looks like a Dave Hill image, it is close but not consistent.  As a portrait, you can always convert to black-and-white, which will fix the skin tones. A positive here is the lighting works great with the glasses with no bounce back.
