Roman Male Head Detail #1, SLAM

Rummaging through some older shots from the St. Louis Art Museum, I came across a number of pictures I took in the antiquities section.  I remember shooting this Roman bust from a number of angles, trying to deal with the missing nose.  For my aesthetic, confronting the problem head on usually works best.
Technical: Nikon D100, Nikkor 50mm f1.8, ISO 800, f/2.0 @ 1/160s, handheld.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.5 to correct color, do a bit of dodging and burning, and apply my version of Mike Lao's 300 preset.
