This would be a nice image for a cigar advertisement. I like the composition, but I wish there was the contrast was a bit more.

great composition. i would have upped the contrast...especially for this challenge, as the image just has an overall greyish feel to it. looks like you did some post processing to darken the background, that could have gotten closer to the subject. i would have done an overall level adjustment , then either masked out the subject or used the doge tool to bring him back in. anyway, nice lines and lighting.

Great focus & DOF. Perfect composition and lighting too. I'm glad I came back to this shot, because upon closer inspection it really is impressive. My only minor criticism is the obvious lines of processing in the dark areas around the figure (especially the hands and arms). Still a very strong entry.

I like it! The mood is definately captured here. And being able to see the 8 on the ball does alot which may not be obvious.

Me Gusta! Only thing I can suggest is the light in the upper right is distracting.

very nice composition and light. i love the hand, it tell so much about the person. very calm and pensive. love the atmosphere.

I really like this shot! Very Al Capon/1920s-ish. The contrast is great, the lighting and focus too. Only suggestion - it would have been neat to see his head, especially if it was still hidden in the shadows, with him wearing a fedora hat, so that his face was hidden, but still there. If that makes any sense... :) But still, great! 9

Nice black atmosphere, but my experience is that voters will vote it down as being too dark. Nice composition and subject.

Absolutely beautiful. The subtlety of light is amazing here. you've achieved a great balance here, with just enough tension to make it all work. If I had a hat, I would take it off. 10

Nice photo. Dark on my calibrated monitor. Contrasting light on the hand is quite effective.

Seems more dark than high contrast to me. I do like the "shot" though. Composition and set up is excellent just not necessarily a high contrast picture to me.
