Comment by strangeghost:
I think the picture is OK but the guy's suit is really bad. I don't know from style, but I think he'd look much nicer in darker colors; blues, grays, or blacks. While the environmental portrait idea is nice, tighter on his face and upper torso would bring out his personality and eyes more.

Comment by Tlemetry:
I feel there is to much space over his head, I would crop just below the light fixture.
The angle of this shot is great, the stuff in the background is supporting the story, without being to much clutter, The colorful belt thing is not demanding attention quite as much.
I would take his hand out of his pocket and placed it on the other one. It is to straight to me and really emphasizes that the jacket looks to big for him. Probably very comfortable for him though.
The biggest issue with this shot is the blown out reflection in the mirror behind his head. His shoulder disappears into the brightness.
A little more fill on the right side of his face might have balanced the light a little better. Its hot on one side and deep in shadow on the other.

If he is a friend of yours, its a great opportunity to learn. Try new angles, get some with him smiling, he looks like he would have a great smile. loosen up and have fun. Get some casual shots with the jacket off and get him to not be so stiff in front of the camera and try this shot again.

Comment by Tlemetry:
I like the offset placement of the subject.
I would have removed quite a few of the barbers materials in the background. Its a little cluttered.
I like shallow dof. I might blur the background out a bit to make the subject stand out.
The glare in the picture frame is distracting, I would try to remove that. I would also try to remove one of the catch lights in the eyes.
The colorful thing in the bottom is cut in half so its not a part of the image, I would have removed it or featured it. It is the most colorful thing in the shot and very much dragging my eye to it.
Using Curves, I would add a bit more contrast to the shot.

And something to think about when setting up a shot like this is to pay attention to the clothes. The bunched up wrinkled suit jacket looks a little sloppy like it doesn't fit him. Its a minor thing and not something you need to worry about in this shot. Just for future thought.

Comment by ltlmschrisss:
I think the color and lighting in this photo is good. However with the background I feel like you are trying to showcase something and I can not figure out which it is. Logically I am thinking the award on the bottom left, but it is cut off. My eye is drawn first to the office supplies and then to the certificates on the wall.

Wonderful shot. I wish I could have been there to feel the rumble of that radial engine.

The almost pain of ecstasy. Would love to hear.
ETA: again, the BW gets to the heart of the matter.

Comment by WalesP:
He doesn't look happy. Both the color version and the B&W are excellent. I found that the color version seemed to bring out the emotion in his face a little bit more than the B&W. There seems to be a whole lotta story here.

I love it. I love the darkness with the light enhancing just the right places. I love her pose and how it doesn't look "posed". And she is beautiful.
