interesting photo, but i don't see anything photojournalistic here. the idea of photojournalism is primarily to tell visual stories that will grab the reader enough to make them go on and read the paper. if the picture raises questions that can't be immediately answered in the caption, then the reader typically doesn't even touch the story. this image raises more questions than it answers...

Really really like this, one of the very few that I really want to know more about the story. Great shot and great "hook" to get me to buy the newspaper. 10

Yeh, I can see this in a magazine or newspaper article. Technically its just about right, b&w is a good choice, seems to give the picture strength and anyway I prefer b&w. Best of luck

Great expression on his face, and this works real well in B/W, nice tonal range with your conversion. Maybe a wider crop so that his left arm is not cut off.
