A nicely done portrait but I think the white background is too sharp a contrast from the subject and leaves the subject floating.

I don't like this picture! Centered composition with too much empty space, empty staring eyes and unnatural crop.

This is the third time James has come up, and he looks very different in each picture. ;>þ

Squinting? White background a bit too overwhelming. great tone and grayscale on the subject. 6

A bold attempt, so I give you credit for the mere creativity. I think I would lightly burn the torso, though, as it is so much more washed out than the rest of the face.
