My personal objective is to improve how to create a composition and pass an emotion through the photography. For this challenge, I tried to give you the same emotion that we are stuck in our thoughts

Hope you will like it

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An interesting image that meets the challenge indirectly.

I quite like the fact that you have approached the challenge from a not so obvious perspective with the hand as a secondary inclusion. However, from the point of view of the challenge this is probably not as effective as giving the hand more a prominent role. As I was initially looking at this I was ruminating my thoughts and I instinctively adopted a posture with my fingers in front of my mouth and the back of my hand and probably a frown would have been prominent in any image that might have been taken of me. I think such a pose would have conveyed your intentions much better. The gentleman here, to be honest, looks as though he's about to doze off!

The DOF is very shallow here to the extent that you don't have both eyes in focus which is not always necessary but here you are wanting to get into the mans head and two doorways are better than one. The composition is just about ok but feeling just a little on the tight side, the darker stripe in the left background doesn't add to the image and should therefore have been excluded, a plain wall would have been better. The window lighting is good with a nice variation from bright to dark without any excess and retaining good detail.

Your commenter got the message! Thank you for a competent entry Marcel.
