I was going for a more historical looking effect.

Nice shot.

I wish you had a second light source for the right side of the image to separate the subject from the background a bit more. The arm on the right is cropped awkwardly because it leaves the gap showing the background that's a bit distracting. That shot calls for crossed arms IMO. I believe you're military, right? Aren't all your portraits very formal/stiff? If you had brought your light source more toward the camera, you'd have a little more light on the subject's left eye.

Thanks for sharing! :)

Yeah. I notice a lot of your shots from that bunch are kind of awkwardly cropped. You could always just pull out a bit more and crop in post if you really want to. Better to have too much room than not enough. I like the light, though. Super high key is right up my alley.
