|Huh? I don't see any possible way this deserves a bottom 10 finish. You're using nice bokah for the background, fairly even lighting on the face, no hot spots on the glasses, nit-picks (and they are that) - light spot on his left forehead, lower portion of tie is a bit washed out color-wise. I may have tried a crop through his right shoulder (red background side), so he anchors the picture with his head / body, and is looking into negative space (which, if there is room in your original a bit more would be better). I have no clue who the man is, but it looks like he is a reporter for CNN, or is giving a statement to CNN. I even like his slightly bemused expression that you caught.
