This is a wonderful picture of time and experience. The expression says gentle wisdom.

Very well done.

Interesting subject, nice rich colors, but the contrast looks a bit harsh. His skin looks almost plastic.

Very dark.

At first I thought it should be a bit brighter. However after viewing it a few times I think you captured this shot quite well.

Ooh... love the texture in the skin and the low key lighting. Ideally I think I'd like just a little more whiteness in the eyes. Is the shirt oversharpened or is that just the shirt? The white dots in the shirt on one hand add to the texture but I think overall they distract from the face.

very sharp and it works well with this photo. maybe just a tad dark are maybe it's the contrast.

the excesive brightness of the skin and t-shirt contradicts the low key concept of the rest

The composition is good. The highlights are too strong. I think it needs backlighting to provide some outline for the subject.

Brilliant image. I hope people are able to see it properly. I think our monitor tends to be a bit brighter than most. Hope it scores well for you. 9

Nice title and focus on the face but you could have focused a little more on the glasses because your eyes aren't really drawn to them at first.

this may have been intentional, but I personally would have used some lighting to separate the subject and the background

I love the composition of the shot, but I wish overall it showed more detail
