Man, you're almost brilliant! And so young, too! I shouldn't be talking, but, man, you're so cool! Sorry if I sound annoying, by the way.

Very effective use of grayscale. Fantastic tonal range. The single visible eye is perfect.

Hello! Umm... 10. Love the composure, the choice of bw, the hat, the pose, and, oh, the you arent that bad to look at either. Good stuff!

you know what really would have made this photo? More negative space, no missing elbow. Otherwise, fabulous model pose and I want to say that there is something about the conversion to black and white, but I don't know what I think is wrong, so I'll leave it at that. Photo just seemed a bit underexposed.
