Nice B&W, I wish the lighting was a little bit brighter on this. BB

nice, a bit dark for me. But eyes are very cool. The lights in there getting all the attention, and maybe that's why you left the rest dark. Good composition. Nice photo overall :)

The noise reduction really hurts the photo (from my point of view anyway) It looks way too plasticy now.

Way to go with popping your eyes out and composing yourself...problem is the photo is extermly flat...to much grays and blacks, try to make your cheeks pop out by dodging them or something...or dodging your shirt. The photo just feels dead but you have a good idea on how to make it work.

I dig the pose and the lighting. Composition is also very nice. Good work.

I like the somber gray tones in this - seems fitting for the pose/title. A tad too much smoothing/neat image on the face, maybe.

cool stare - too much smoothing in the image

Composition is nice; picture is dark and moody. Skin, especially, looks overprocessed to me.
