Greetings from the Critique Club!

Hi! I like this image, the emotive factor is there and the black and white sets a very nice tone.

It looks like a decent use of the rule of thirds with the person covering the left and bottom side of the frame but I would have liked to maybe seen their face a bit more, just a slight turn more towards fireplace so you could at least see one eye and the look of deep thought in it.

The grain is a bit much, just a bit more than really needed for this shot though this shot does work well with grain.

There is one spot on the bottom of the foot that almost looks blown out, not sure if it was a light or from post processing. And possibly just a touch more contrast to give it a little more edge.

Hope my comments help!

Excellent image. If not for the clothing, it looks like it could be a century old. Perfect image for grain. Nice job!
