What a super image. Great lighting, clarity, mood-setting; all the good things that make up a superior picture.

Members of the Critique Club are supposed to look at an image and try to tell the maker 'how to make it better.' Not in this case. I think the image is just fine as it is, and actually in this tough competition, your score is at least a decent one.

About the only thing I can do is encourage you to keep shooting, keep experimenting and know that there are many DPCers who really do like your work.

I look forward to seeing more of it.

you know what would add more interest for me in this picture...if the one side of his face was in total shadow and the other side was in the light...I like the scruffy look on him. Great tones and super focus
