Thanks, just happened to be at the right place at the right time. Congrats should go to you and your blue ribbon finish!

Love how he is staring at you. I'd like to have seen a little more of the white cropped off the top.

Nice work with the grain on this...not too much, not too little...it seems to show itself in all the right places as well. Good grittiness(pun not intended) to this "real life" portrait!

Title very appropriate. Definitely a very focused image.

Ya, this works. Grain works in this "modern" image to convey the grittiness of the job. Good composition, good crop. My only critique is I wish the reflection in the safety glasses wasn't there so the viewer can see his eyes. Other than that, this is well done.

Great portrait, perhaps even more grain would work too.
