There are many kingdoms in the world, where the royalty has been handed and passed on to them.. just like the old times, but in modern day history. Before you advertise such a ridiculous statement you might want to reconsider will find that country's such as Thailand, Morocco, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and more all currently use this form of monarchy.

Superbe photographie, je n'ai pu en détacher les yeux pendant plusieurs longues minutes. J'avoue que la beauté du modèle ne doit pas y être étrangère. Sorry if I wrote in french, it's so hard for me to say what I really feel in another language, even less when it's about art. :/
I'm still loving the amber/golden brown tones! His expression is wonderful although morose. He looks defeated... I rather like the position of his lips, strangely, and I can't exactly explain why. Just do, I guess! My favorite part, other than the colors and seemingly dim lighting, is the position of his shoulders. They match the mood and his facial expression, how they are a little slumped, making him seem closed in on himself. This makes it seem like he *isn't* looking down in disgust, like a previous comment had said. I think he seems defeated and wistful.
Btw, I think I figured out why I love the golden browns that you apparently dislike: the tones remind me of wear I used to live...sitting during winter with a book in front of the warm fireplace built into my living room's brick wall. Although it makes me feel sad to think of this because I miss it, I really do enjoy the reminiscence I get just from the colors of a photo. So thank you!
To be honest with you, he kinda looks constipated. The coloring is cool, but his facial expression brings some amusement to the photograph. I'm not sure if that was what you were going for, but okay! I don't mean to be mean, i love your photography, i was just saying...
