So, the dreaded blob of stuff in a basic editing challenge. Crop it out? Levels it out? Or maybe it serves a purpose, huh? Now, try to count how many people actually think there may be a point to that blob of stuff, voters here especially, and see if you run out of fingers. On one hand. But it balances, of course, the blur of the microphone, and gives reason to the negative space, without which this is a simple tight-ctopped portrait.

Still, I'd want more from it - I just don't feel there's enough relativity here: what seems an angry expression, but ... the shades of course, preventing visibility of the eyes, and that emphasises the lack of facial real estate here, and leaves us still searching for some confirmation of intent in this face.

Nice profile, but the lighting "flare" dot on the back of the singer's head draws the eye & detracts from the score...Too Bad! :( Otherwise, great photo! :)

very nice portrait, but what's that thingy in top right - might have been cropped out to have a square format then.
microphone is a bit lost in the darkness

Great shot - except for that thing behind his head. That should have been removed IMO...
