Felt like I had to get something in for the head to head... probably going to wish I hadn't felt that way...
However, this picture really caught me off guard alittle when I first looked at it as it symbolic of my life in that I feel like I'm coming out of the darkness into the light. I've always lived as a sinner and I will always be a sinner, but as a Christian I grow in my walk everyday and find myself growing in the light of the Lord. If that sounds cheesy to you then you've never felt his light and I hope you do... it's quite amazing when you find it. I still have a million miles to walk, but I'm getting there...

Hmmm, the idea is great but the shirt is what bothers me and it's really distracting. He could have taken a better clothes or you to crop just the face (sorry about my previous unfinished comment)

The drama inherent in how the subject was revealed is good, but it's a rather stock piece seen in other images and not particularly "creative". Having said that, it's still a great image - strong and purposeful mood piece that would work well in any other venue or challenge and place well.
