Like Pedro has said, I think the title of this shot lifts it up into a very personal image. The image itself is a little edgy and reportage-y, which is no bad thing! Excellent.

Good focus, and it feels like you are extending your hand for a handshake.

The off-center nature of the photo almost works for me, but cutting off the left eye is too much of a disconnect - it "feels" wrong to have the face truncate there. I'd like to see more of the face in the picture, a bit of blank black space to the right, but not as much as now.

Really nice lighting on this one.

Really like the tones in this picture. The offset is a good touch, but I think you went just a little too far. Still very good.

Interesting texture in the negative space, adds something. Shoulder's a little bit washed out.

Nice to meet you, too! I like your position within the frame, and the cropping works well, too. Nice use of b/w.

Nice angle and lighting. One thing bugs me is your shirt seems to be more in focus then your face. You must have moved. I always take at least 20 pictures just to make sure I get the perfect shot. good luck.

oddly enough, it's the title that sets this apart. i rated this in my top 10 of the challenge. something very personal about it, and I can't tell if it's the title, or your expression. either way, good on ya.

Nice to meet you to,
Interesting choice of framing. Looks like you face is slightly out of focus, or maybe a motion blur. The very blackness of the background is nice, but I think part of your sholder is a little too saturated.

This isn't goofy or weird like other photos in this challenge (though neither is a bad thing), but I really appreciate your use of composition and light to make a marvelous photo. 10

Focus is lacking and I don't like the "in your face" shot. Also, your expression, or lack of one, is not warm and does not match your photo's title.

Good portrait, cropped well. The light sepia toning works - 9.
