Greetings from the critique club.

Wow. Powerful image indeed. This was one of the few challenges I missed voting on due to being moved out of my house and other life chaos, but this indeed screams power and is a fantastic entry for the challenge. That this was a self portrait makes it all the more incredible to me.

The exposure used gave you that wonderful black background which really made the portrait pop. And that you so clearly captured wind really added impact. The expression is fierce.

On the left side of the image next to your jacked is a bit of something reddish off the elbow, then next to the hair on the left side a bit of yellow, that possibly weren't meant to be in the shot? I'm not sure exactly, but they seem like part of the background. (I had to really look quite a while before I noticed these, so I'm not sure I would say they bothered me at all, but perhaps others?)

Great job. I love the creativity!
