OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for my Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: Really bold image - I like the way that you have really committed to it - the composition, the pose, the POV, the harsh lighting, the tone-mapped look.

Critical stuff: There are few elements that detract from the purity of the image and I'm sure you could have cloned them out legally under advanced - for me they are: the strip lights in the lateral windows and the foliage top right. I also think a tad more space below his feet would have balanced the image.

Overall: I really like it, but is so nearly fantastic, that the small distractions become even more apparent.

This begs the question: "Do clothes make the man"?

What is he sitting on? Not sure I like the centered composition, and it just looks a little awkward. That being said, I like the soft focus.
