Brilliant, Helen! You really must continue taking pics - you are so good. This is definitely worthy of a ribbon.

Great lighting. Great composition. Nice detail and DOF. I bet this is one of those images that is added by the B&W format. Congrats on a superior image.

I love when a portrait tells a story about the person... this is wonderful! DOF is just right... enough to focus on the face, and show the photos, but also enough to separate them.

Great photo! DOF, sharpness, & tonal range are wonderful.

Back to comment: Love how you incorporated the man's work behind him. Makes more than just another "pretty" face. Nice lighting and composition. 10

Great control of the contrasts...not heavy handed with the tones. Nice use of natural light too...I also like the "real" environment...not a studio shot. 8

Does the title has something to do with the photos on the background?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Man...this is definitely one of my fav's. It looks like something that should be on the book jacket of a novel, don't you think?

Ok, there is a raging debte about people's voting habits at the moment, so i will attempt to give a detailed comment with my vote:

Sharp;good. Bokeh that gives a poping out effect; good. title: good and goes with the effective blurred background. Lighitning on the guy, great. 8...9..umm, let's go with nine seeing how everyone seems to be scoring low
