Hi Bob- nice shot... the lighting, angle and expression are all great, though I'd like to see you moved further to the right within the frame. Something about the edge detail seems off- maybe some slight motion, ISO1600, or something in the way the shot was processed, but there's just enough pixelization around the eyes to be noticeable. Still, a strong entry.

You have really pretty eyes.

Great lighting. I like the reflections in the eyes, the stare, the use of black & white. Good job. BTW, you look just like the Tennessee Titan's coach Jeff Fisher (that's not a bad thing).

Nothing technically wrong here IMO. A good shot, but a bit overwhelmingly close. It looks a bit angry to me, and I think angry really needs some negative space to work well.

Returning for comment:
A great character study with good killer lighting to bring out the mood. The technoque is beyond question. Bumping up.

You certainly have the look of Jeff Fisher, Head Coach of the Tennesee Titans down. Tight crop, light a tad harsh, eyes make this shot. Good job!
