Definitely don't think this will do well, but I absolutely love it. Very dark, moody...I see this as the part of me that comes out when I'm having a bad day. Kind of my alter ego.

Haha, love these dark moody portraits. I'm a fan of hard light -hard shadows. Nice work, nice score.

I like this, aside of the whashed out highlights, which might be a deliberate choice. But I think more hihglight detail would have made for a more enticing, still drammatic, portrait.
