Please disregard the comments that this is too dark. You are in great company. Please check out a few of the portraits at //www.ernst-haas.com/main.html. Particularly look at Haas' portrait of film director John Huston. If you can find it on the web, Haas also has a wonderful portrait of Leonard Bernstein that uses this lighting technique.

Wow - great job conveying a really strong mood and tone in the photograph. The lighting works perfectly. Excellent shot!

All you need is an ash tray on the desk with a lone cig, smoke wafting towards the ceiling. :) Come to think of it, that would have been an excellent additional element. Really like the strong side lighting. 8

Rembrandt-like in the quality of light. Really emotive set-up. Great use of classic triangle composition. Good job!

Possibly the best of show, congratulations!

The strongest aspect of this picture is the story it tells. The comp is superb. Foreground/background is stunning. You could have rendered in black & white but the colors drag the eye to just the right places. I'm glad you didn't. (10)

Needed a little more light to bring out the subjects of this photo.

I think I understand what you're trying to do - but there needs to be a little more light here.

missing multiple light sources. Good effort.

little too dark, shadows too pronounced, seems though to fit the mood, just not very attractive

I don't see multiple sources of light on this.

Great use of lighting to convey mood. I'd feel like the right figure was more natural if there was some kind of arm motion, but overall its well composed!

I'm intrigued by the narrative going on here, but there seems to be only one light source, and it's too extreme to one side. If feels like there's too much black, and I'd like to see a bit more of the figures. It took me a second look to make them out.
