I love the sharpness, the illumination, and the composition. Possibly this would be improved if the background were a little more blurred so its texture wouldn't compete with the texture on the face, and if there were a little more distinction between the rear of the head and the background in the upper right corner.   Posted: 11/04/2019 19:39:48

You did very well to get this shot, with its nice distribution of light and shadow from left to right, I presume coming in the window. Sharpness is perfect.
Is there a story? Do you know this person, or get their permission to be photographed?   Posted: 11/10/2019 15:24:43

I think this is a great image. The composition is perfect and the tonal range is great. I like how suer focused it is and you can see the extrude of his skin. Very well done.   Posted: 11/12/2019 10:19:53

Very nice image. I like the relaxed expression on his face. Since you were talking to him, I wish you had been able to have him move away from the window sill in front of him. I find it distracting and would prefer to have the rest of his face. Although I like your composition, I tried another by cropping in from the left, darkening and smoothing the background.   Posted: 11/14/2019 19:13:28

This feels a little too crowded to me.   Posted: 11/24/2019 07:46:47

Now that you mention it, probably less of a crop, but I still think it needs a crop on the left.   Posted: 11/24/2019 14:51:50
