I have always loved boxing and have always loved training and working hard. Boxing will surely do that for you. I am 5'6 and weigh 152 Lbs. Just making it into the Welterweight class. I thought this picture would show not only what I love to do, but what also makes good money.

I think there is a little too much un-sharp mask on this one.

The editing really weakens this shot. The skin has sort of a metalic look that's very unnatural especially in the face. I think some more show of movement might have helped the shot.

Another painful profession! Best of luck on your next fight.

It looks like you did a little too much post production. Your boxer looks very digital. It definatly takes away quality.

I like this image mostly, however, the oversharpining on the abs I don't care for. On the face and upper body I like but looks odd on the abs. Nice DOF and seperation.

nice lighting on the boxer, but would be a lot better if the bag was in shadow and was a deeper black to contrast with the whites on the boxer.

Maybe it's just me, but I think the shot is a bit over processed. Also, IMHO I think this would have had more impact in Sepia, or B&W.

It looks like it was taken with flash; there are harsh shadows and blown out portions of the face and body.

mmm a bit overdone with postprocessing... :( I mean as if emboss filter is applied on the muscles.

This looks like an advertisement for a action man doll. Something gone wrong with the face.

You went a little overboard on the sharpening/USM - remember that it can't make up for bad focus (I often have to tell myself that!) | B&W may have worked better here | A little vignetting would have helped focus the viewers attention | Lighting would have been nicer if the key was brought around 180 degrees & a light fill added where the main light source is right now (I know, you probably didn't have control over where the light was, but you could have moved the bag to coordinate with the light or used a trouble light -- anything!) | Perspective is flat, coming around & placing the camera so we were looking around it slightly would have brought more drama to the image.
