I like the composition of this but feel it needs more contrast to draw the eye more.

Greetings from the Critique Club.

My initial thoughts on this are that I am often off-put by these type of shots, but seperating myself from that, I think you did a good job composing this and filling the frame. I think what hurt this shot, accounting for the score, was the nose being out of focus. For a shot like this, you really want all parts of the image to be tack sharp.
Also, the black and white tones could use some more contrast as they look a little flat. Also as was mentioned, the stubble does not help in this case.

I noticed you wanted comments on the vignetting and to be honest I don't see any. If you added any, it's very subtle. I don't think this is the type of shot that would benefit from a vignette. If you take a look at stock photography for this type of shot you wouldn't see that, you made a good choice where that is concerned.

Don't be too discouraged by the placing and the score, we've all had them. This is how we grow as artists, keep shooting!

I don't understand the lack of comments and low score. I gave you 7.

Comment by dtremain:
Keep in mind this is a critique of the picture, not of the photographer. Crop - I think you've chosen well for the crop - enough space left, right, top, and bottom - nose gives additional context, even though it is cut off. Vignetting - not enough to be a visually significant factor.
I think three things that really hurt your score are:
No white whites - yeah, I know buttermilk isn't white, but since it is in b & w, you could make it look white. As it is, the "whitest" part of the pictures looks like a very unattractive (even repulsive - especially on teeth) grey.
Lighting - I am no expert on lighting, but the picture's lighting makes this look like a dentist shot, with wet, icky teeth - pulling attention away from the milk-stache.
Stubble - little sprouts of facial hair are not attractive - either clean shaven, or a nicely trimmed mustache would work better.
