Nice lighting and shadow. Perfect amount of light on the wall and you can see his shadow on the wall slightly as well. Placement of subject is perfect composition

Great use of lighting and a wonderful shot... But now I have to preach at you, sorry... Take it from an old man... Quit smoking while you're still young... By the time you're 40 your REALLY going to wish you had... Trust me.

Congrats on a great shot.

The stripes plus the pose against the wall suggest a sort of prison theme. Does the title imply that the person you wait for has trapped you in some way?

This portait creates a definite mood - very nice. The glare of the artificial light, the blankness of the wall, the shadow on your face, your position as you slump against the wall. Waiting in an empty place - hopefully Irina will come soon. I woudl like to see how the pic would look if it included your foot on the ground and a bit of ground at the bottom - I'm wondering if it would give the viewer a better sense of place - or perhaps are you saying you are "up in the air" without Irina?

Hmm, seems out of balance to me for some reason (titled, I'm not sure), BUT, this is a great shot with the spectacular lighting, contrast, and colors.

I love this shot. It's truly splendid. You capture quite an essence there. I love the use of Diffuse Glow in the image. It's soft an not over done. Visually, great composition. The pose is excellent, and if I may say so, you know how to select your clothes- they suit you very well. This is a 9 or 10 to me.

Great portriature - love the monochrome feel to this and your composition. Really invokes a feeling in the viewer. 10
