I've already pulled two submissions for this stupid challenge and I've finally decided to go with this image, lol. Just can't make up my mind, but I'm done changing it up. I figured the attitude would help sell this image for the challenge better; hopefully that's a good gamble.

This was actually taken on white seamless...had to use grids and good light & subject placement to black out the background because we were shooting high key just before this.

Lots of great stuff in this image. I think you could have gone even more radical with the light. And I wish his body language was as intense as his face.
