"Trapped!" is a great idea for the Square Crop challenge. I read your comments and you stated you still had the 150 dollar camera. I am not sure what mega pixel that camera would be but I would think you would be able to get a bigger resolution then 465*465.

The image itself is a great idea, I was surprised there weren't a bunch of DPCers trapped in a box for this challenge. I think black and white was probably the best choice with this shot, especially with the stripped shirt. One thing you might look at next time is how black the background is able to look in your shot. It looks like the flash may have been to bright also in the shot. Because of the flash it has created some hot spots on the image especially on the forearm and forehead. I really love the idea, I think the more challenges you enter the more you learn and will continue to grow.

Great idea, but a little off balance. Maybe move the man up a bit and get his feet pushing too?

Lighting is too harsh and his shirt does not work well for a B&W shot. I like the idea.

Not bad, but too much contrast, and it is a small picture, extra point for actually being square though.

Technically this looks terrible and I don't care for the picture either. Time to buy a book on photography?
