MY COMMENTS:
Talked to a gallery owner and we discussed what was lacking in my figurative... lets say I need to start DOING figurative as I already know the "strangers-watching-you-eat-dinner" effect of a portrait of someone you don't know is not really figurative and hindering sales.
So we decided it was drama.
I got there early and FOUGHT over this pose.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
The two are an average... top is more detail, but bottom has a little more of the brilliance...(flare avoiding and bad camera settings)
Drama?
