No cut and paste ... or do you think it just looks that way?

Beautiful portrait, i don't think there is C&P here.
Only a good light and composition

Great character. I suppose you made the background too black. It would be better to make it darker but not black and masking would not be that visible. Anyway i like the guy and the pose you captured. Nice work!

@David Chabashvili: Yes, it was nearly all black with a few extraneous, annoying bits floating about so I just finished it off. :-)

Damon Schreiber from Toronto, Canada

Great capture and interesting tones.

it looks like it,didn't mean a result of an act of C&P,well,i noticed the edge of figure a bit of unnatural,maybe was the lighting.Cheers.

this image lacks contrast. the man's skin tone seems off - just a dull gray.
