5.8? Are you kidding me? This was robbed. Great photo! Adding to my favorites. This should have ribboned.

Greetings from the Critique Club: I have been assigned your photo to critique and here are my thoughts:

Personal Reaction: You have presented an image that really creates a sense of the person (yourself in this case.) I like the emotional payload! I also like that it is out-of-the-box. I am frankly tired of seeing the same genres over and over Ö this was refreshingly different.

Composition: Absolutely terrific. I canít really add anything to the sentiment expressed in the many comments you received.

Technicals: Very good for your purpose. The lighting is exceptional. Focus could be stronger, but if it were, it wouldnít be as good a photo. I am not wild about the border, but I donít generally like borders

Conclusions: A fine photo you should be proud of. I can visualize this as a book-jacket photo of an author, or a movie poster photo for a crime or legal drama. I can also visualize it in a gallery as part of a show. It didnít score particularly well because it wasnít one of those happy, nice-nice photos or a member of one of the over exposed genres. Screw it, I thought it was well done and I liked it.

As always, this is my personal opinion. Feel free to PM me if youíd like further dialog.

Really punchy, gritty quality to this image which should have finished far higher IMO.
Nicely done.

Gooc?? This is good. I like the contrast and the earthy sense of it. The crop works and closes you in the "window." Reminds me of an old photojournalism image of a hard working editor or writer. I like how your eyes are looking down. Interesting overall texture. Nicely done.

Great old time photo feel. Composition pushed to the side works wonders to create the mood. Bump.
