Just going through your shots and can't believe this didn't score alot higher, I would have given it a 10.

Hello from the Critique Club,

I remember this image from voting and my first impressions were that it was nice to see a non-flower shot with a strong human element. However, the focus in this image looks a little soft like your failed to sharpen the image after resizing. I would suggest trying Unsharp Mask after resizing. For Paint Shop Pro, the settings I use most are Radius 1, Strength 100, and Clipping 5. If the sharpening effect is too strong (causes pixelation), decrease the strength to between 50 and 75 or decrease to around 30 and sharpen a couple of times.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding this critique.

Finally, one of the top three photos in my view... and it does not have a flower in it! Well done. 9 from me.

this leaves me very curious as to his surroundings. dpc likes to see the details though, and not the big picture, so your choice was probably very sound. your shadow boost feels a bit excessive. nice job of separating him from the background. It still looks a bit sketchy though around his hands and face, as if it was spot blurred, but i know you couldn't have done that ;)

Very interesting human element. He sort of looks like he's glowing. It looks just a touch noisy or out of focus.
