Shots like this leave me torn on voting. The impact of the shot comes from the model, but that could apply to just about any challenge. The challenges, to me, aren't "shoot a model well and have him/her hold/be next to/look at whatever the challenge is about." Your title doesn't seem to match the model, either. Most people in chains don't look that good, do they? Ultimately, I think I need to vote this a 5. I'll probably be alone on that, but the chains just don't contribute enough to the shot for me.

The look on his face says if you free me I'll rip your head open. Nice lighting. Like the highlight on the background. - 7

Excellent lighting!
The rich browns and grays combined with the shadows help set the mood while the contrast keeps things a little more dynamic.

nice studio shot, however its too clean cut to have any emotinal impact in the viewer, in my opinion. BUT, the lighting is great, good looking subject, but in this case I think he detracts away from the image as a whole, there is more focus on him than on anything else.
But I do love the lighting, will give a 7 overall.

2nd voting pass, will leave this at a 7, but I know a lot of voters go mad for this style shot, should do well.
