Whoa Connor, who you pretending to be? Joey Lawrence?

Your photos were good before, but you have really stepped it up recently. This one was one of my favourites in the challenge.

Looks like a jam session. I like the B & W.

I definately like this. In my opinion, there is too much space on the left.

Oh I like this a lot. Reminds me of something Annie Liebovitz would do.

I must be honest -- this is not as impacting a portrait for me as you probably think it should be, and I'm not as engaged with the subject as I'd like. But the light... my god, the light. It's beautiful. Everything from the way you've arranged it on the backdrop to the drama on his face is quite perfect for me. Well done. You have issues with haloing around the sax, and I believe I see wrinkles on the backdrop, but nice job on the light. 8
