Shape: Roman with nostrils set low

This has become a popular "test" for some of the judges, either it has a prominent Roman nose or it doesn't win. The nose should definitely be Roman in shape, in other words convexly curved. The curve is accentuated by the low set nostrils. Sometimes the nose is Roman but there isn't a distinct "stop" to separate the forehead and the nose. So there needs to be a combination of the definite "stop" proper placed flat spot, right length of head and correct shape of the nose to have the proper profile.
