Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that meets the challenge

A great portrait Cole. The shallow DOF from that maximum aperture is what makes this such a great image, your focus getting the eyes sharp is in the right place with just enough DOF to keep the nose in focus too. Itís really emphasising the rugged face against the nice soft focus facial and body features. I like the mono processing together with the grainy feel it really enhances the end result. If I were to change anything it would be the top background, I really wish you had that dark background throughout giving it a low key even grittier feel. With such a challenge as this it is open to wide interpretation, I suspect some may have voted it down because they didnít feel it was incidental enough but your use of technique fills the challenge brief for me, well done.

The dof, centered subject and monochrome are really good.
