Very unique!

The shadow going across the focal point (the eye) doesn't quite work. I'd like to see a different lighting angle. But nice composition.

Not sure I understand your title. Is there actually a lens in those glasses? Good focus and DOF

Very striking shot, which communicates that this person is at rest, so fits the challenge for me. Great lighting, almost creating a posterised look. I like the composition. Effective, creative picture. 8

Something is wrong with the balance of this photo. I like the concept a lot and I almost like the execution. However the over exposed look doesn't work for me; The cropping feels awkward. The eyebrow is cut off, the weight of the photo is at the top, as is the center of focus. the view is too straight on. the nice shadow of the glasses is lost in the glare. The black border contributes to the unbalance, maybe a lighter blorder or no border would be better. The border seems to crowd the top by the eyebrow, seems to emphasize that the bottom is too light and seems to draw the eye to the guys hair which is similar in color but which shouldn'e be a focal point. Where is the point ehre the focus is sharpest? It should be the eyelashes but isn't quite. the glare on the upper left corner of the glasses frame is distracting. This is such a nice set up that I really think you should try it again to make the photo image match your mental image.

Witty. Loved it.

Good details, colours. Was there no glass in the frame? I see no lens glare at all. Except maybe the upper left coner, but I can't tell for sure.

I love the concept of this shot, and the way you've overexposed the image. My only quibble is the shadow from the glasses, if you had positioned the light perpendicular to the face you may have been able to eliminate that shadow! I great shot though! Congrats!

Good lighting, I like the detail.

Cool - looks like a painting

Interesting photo, but the lighting is a little bright in places, such as on the ear, cheek, and nose.

Cool shot. Very creative.
