The title makes me think about how we label people instead of the man thinking about who he is. I gave it a 9 because, even with it's faults (overexposed,washed out) it did make me stop and think, and that's not an easy thing to do. Good job.

Intriguing photo. Good color, OK composition. The dark tones need to be darker to show his skin better and increase the contrast a bit (but use Levels or Curves, which will keep the nice high key approach, not Contrast which would reduce details in the light areas).

Very good! The overall whiteness of the photo works well, and I like the idea of the person contemplating who he is and where he fits into the grand scheme of things.

This would have been my favourite for this challenge, I am sure that you have been told already it is way too light, why? you could have post edited it darker, is your monitor dark???

this is an extraordinary image - I am not absolutely sure what it has to do with the challenge except that he has certainly lived a lot of life...it will go in my favorites

This picture is wonderful! It makes questions in my head faster than raindrops and I definitely would hang it. The variety of white and grey tones give it great wash appeal I think but it comes out on my screen a little too flat. I do wish the skin of the man's arm was a little less in the direct sun. The face of the man is handsome, warm and invitational and makes me want to talk to himd. I am not that fond of the title but that's a minor consideration. I enjoy this photo very much.

Interesting. I like the softness of the photo. It made me think.

This is nice. Would of been better to crop out the bottom and bring the viewers closer to his face. [more of an impact]. Very good find.

Wonderful topic - Ramana Maharishi's "Who am I?" philosophy. but if you had used flash, I would say, you need not have used it. :)
