"The Robber" does meet the Square Crop challenge. I think you have a nice idea and something different to stand out within such a massive challenge.

The image itself has a nice feel to it, even though the subject is harder. First off I really do like the side lighting it gives the image a different perspective then we are used to seeing. I think like many of the commenting people have stated possibly a harsher look would have enhance the image. I think it is hard sometimes to look mean without corny. To me the look is almost a blank stare. I still like the image because you did something different. Also is his mask inside out? It seems to me maybe you were trying to point that out by using the lighting you choose.

Overall this is a nice photo, I think it would have scored higher with a meaner edge. Your lighting choices were a nice difference to have in the challenge.

Sure is a cute robber!!! Nice off center subject. Good lighting. Beautiful eyes. On second review, I think I'd love a black background so his dark mask just kind of fades - like a real robber, about to snatch something into the night. I'd crop to not show the skin of the neck too.

Technically good portrait. For a robber I'd like to see an more dangerous or mad look. He doesn't look dangerous. 8

Put a pipe in the mouth and he would look like Subcomandante Marcos :) A very good portrait and original idea. Good luck!

i stopped and stared at this photograph for a while, trying to figure out why i found it so boring, i still can't place my finger on it, but it is too ordinary for me to give it a high rating.

Great lighting! I love the eyes - your robber doesn't look very menacing;-) Veru nice composition.

I love his gaze. The heavy border works well-nice shot.
