I don't know what to say about this image. It's excellent. Really excellent. And you were robbed of a 6+ score for it. The image screams of music, as I said. Composition is excellent. Lighting is gorgeous. The expression on his face is superb. This is my second time looking back at it. I gave it a 7 during the challenge. When I went back to look at it after I said I'd've given it an 8. But now I think I'd give it a 10 and fav it.
The expression evokes so much.

Oh, yes, forgot to mention, this was a 10 for me. It just conveys so much.

I'm amazed this got under six. don't let that get you down though. excellent capture. fantastic expression captured. love the use of negative space. love your title. love the lightin. the shot screams of music to me, which is incredible as there is no musical instrument in here.

thanks for you support, i didnt mind too much. in the last 2 days it went from a 5.4 to the current score AND i got a 8 from jj! I determined at the start to enter a portrait every f/s this year to try and learn my new lights so we'll see how it goes.

That must be some cool soothing music he's listening to judging by his expression.
