good shot. would have done better if it was actually symmetrical. the left side of the image isn't cropped the same way as the right side. this throws of the comp- it loses the balance you tried to achieve through the positioning of the hands.

the symmetry and dynamics make this a very strong photo, but I have to say the model carries his share.
