Good use of negative space to give the feeling of "pressure"

Wonderful use of lighting technique in your shot. I also like the composition, it really is showing me that feeling of 'pressure'. I can relate well to this shot. Well done.

Nice human form shot but as a portrait I am not impressed.

Very interesting and creative, nice use of light and contrast.

Unique, almost abstract looking. Very much like the lighting you used. Hard to get a sense of the person, but nevertheless a pretty cool shot.

the spots in the background are quite distracting, i think this could have been cropped better and the elbows should have been more symmetrical

good job. a 'photograph' as opposed to the snapshot so many are.

Great idea! Love the fact you used a solid black background on this photo, however the lighting leaves something to be desired for this photo. the left side is extremely bright, and the right is very dark, which might have worked if you were shooting from a different angle, but for this one, I don't think it worked. The detail you can see in your hair on the left side is terrific but the details on your right arm are totally lost due to the lighting. Love the way you can just see one nipple though, which is kind of teasing. Nice to see some male nudity of a good looking guy, instead of always having female nudes on here ;-) I think I would have tried to leave a little room at the bottom with some black, and maybe a little less at the top. Also I think this would have been better if you had made him parallel to the bottom, with your left elbow not just slightly being cut off. Good luck!

I love how you can see the veins in the arms, and I like the black space about you. Nice shot. 8

Great shot. In a sea of headshots you do something original and exposure it perfectly. I give this an 8. Excellent job..
