Excellent lighting. Makes me want to buy a wooden man. The pose is interesting. Only suggestion is to work on the grape and try to make it "glow" a little more (maybe brighten it with more back lighting?)

I really like the lighting in this one. The black background works well here and I like how you've left some black space on the right side a bit.

my two favorite things in this world:

the colors and lighting of your photo.

Greetings from one of the new members to the critique club.
While your subjects are somewhat ordinary you have managed with good lighting and and composition to create a photo that is enjoyable,emotional and thought provoking. I find myself asking, "Why would this (non-eating) figure be interested to hold a grape so carefully and feel remorse that there are no more. You have created a balance with not only the grape between the hands but enduced an emotion between 2 inanimate objects, with the composition(and a little help from the title). The black background helps to pull your shot together and serves to leave out any distracting elements.
Hope this helps, I am new at this.

If you put this guy in a costume and drew eyes on the grape you could say it's the executioner mourning or something...sorry, morbid thought, it's passed now. I like this because, despite no eyes, the model had a reverent type posture, almost philosophical. Good shot.
