Good picture overall but it comes back to the point of greatest impact is the point of greatest contrast. Unfortunately you are way left of that point.

This would have been an amazing pic without the color distraction on the right side of the pic. I'm sure it's just a personal preference but I would have made the entire pic b&W and you still would have had a difference in tones that separated the right from left.

I really like the crop on this and the way you are looking off to the side, nice lighting and pose, good luck!

Not sure if I understand the context of the selective coloring. Nice lighting. Good pose. I think I would just remove the dead space...

Really love this one, one of my faves. Love the composition - virticle lines of neck and background off-set by horizontal crop, perfect exposure and focus, and a soft dash of color grabs your attention while completing the flow made by the posture and gaze. Thought provoking too, really wonder what is holing your attention. The opposite black and white background really makes you 'pop'. Excellent!

Would it be terribly rude and politically incorrect of me to just say "ooh la la!"? Gorgeous - love the division of the background, but REALLY love the light. Great portrait!

I like the use of lighting in this photo, and that you are looking away from the camera. Good job!

Quite an artistic study employing both color and b/w for its final fine presentation. A facade of hidden dreams and aspiration with the nerve to realize their ambition. Where or what is he looking at? The future, of course! Bump.

I like this and there are things about it that bother me but those are actually what makes it interesting and unlike other photos like it. The fact that you are looking out of the frame and the choice of keeping the pale red in the background stripe all break rules to what i think is a good effect.
