Good but the shapes in the background distract me. I almost expect something to pop out of the shadows.

I can't decide if it's grainy just because of low lighting necessitating high iso or because of saught after style. The shapes by his chin are very distracting.

I personally don't care for the harsh contrasts the light creates here... but I do like the sepia tones. Neat! :)

One of only a few not looking at the camera. Nice pose, very contemplative.

Interesting angle from below, it really makes the piece strong. Nice work.

I like the low key lighting and the texture in the beard and face. I also like that the eyes are looking elsewhere. Low angle is interesting too.

I'd like a glint of light in the eye.

I like the angle and the lighting but there color seems a bit "off" to me.

I like the point of view. The background is a bit noisy and contains some distracting elements.
