Wow, great composition, amazing colors, love the rain on the window. I am not sure about the width or color of the frame but that is a personal preference.

This is a picture to be proud of!

I think this is the best portrait shot inthe challenge. Great detail and interesting looking model enhanced by the flow of water on the glass. Very nice. Bumping up.

Great expression, good capture, but border is harsh against his face

Nice work with the composition and cropping. I like how the water is streaming down the window and the use of negative space. Wish he was wearing something darker as the white detracts a bit from the mood. I think I would desaturate this, too.

Very nice, I'm not huge on the border, but the color of his eyes is amazing

The border detracts from this shot. I think it would have been best without one. I think you had a great idea here and did a great job bringing it to print.

Very vivid color to his eyes, but it's the rain streaked window that gives this great photo its emotion. Very nice photo!

Like it. Eye color and lighting are so nice here.

Very cool. I want to think the eyes are oversaturated, but it works well, as there are other tones similar running down the glass. I like it. 7
