Great shot, one thing to suggest, is to have him move foreward so that when he blows the smoke, it is infront of a black area instead of part white and part black... the smoke really seals the deal for this shot, but it's hard to see the way it is... still great shot!

Generally a good photo and good use of contrast but would have liked to see more details in the face and especially the eyes

I do like the almost cinematic feel of the backdrop, but the lack of detail on your subject spoils what could be a strong image.
