This is a really great shot. I like very much the contrast between the subject and the BG. Composition is quite good and so is your expression. Well done.

Very cool how the head seems to be held p by the hands. Great shadows in the face. Lovely tones.

Andrzej Dragan's shots are a lot more drammatic than this. He uses a lot of retouching techniques to enhance the shots. You are trying to re-create the "portrait with dirty nails", and I think that your shot doesn't even start to resemble the work of Dragan. You captured what the camera saw, and he attempts to capture the opposite of that. Sorry. You picked a difficult photographer for a tribute, and IMO this doesn't quite cut it.

This is a WONDERFUL, perfectly executed tribute to that amazing photographer. I love the effect he is famous for, and you have done it so well, and have such a great composition here. One of my favorites here in my opinion! Good luck.
