my only complaint is that the subject looks separated from the background. like it was a composite.

Great image. Wouldn't you love to just borrow some of the experience in life that he probably has. I love grain but it seems just a bit too much in the sky. The diagonal really works well.

Excellent! Agree totally with McNolia.

Nice..really nice.

oh i looove this one, reminds me on ragnar axelsson's work with all the noise in the sky and the b&w... it just looks kinda cut out, i think you should have added a bit more noise to the man's face and jacket, too in order to make the model suit the background.
good work, though, an 8 from me

Interesting angle. The processing works well with the subject.

The position from which this picture has been shot adds to the portrait.

I really like the grittiness and graineness...why didn't you save this at 640px???

Great shot

Great shot and expression on his face. Love the image grain in the shot it really works. Sharpness and clarity also right on. Sepia tone works very well in this shot. Nice work.

Needs a closer crop I think.

First class!! Great capture (expression, angle) and composition. Perfect tonal range. I love the grain and textures. Simply a beautiful monochrome.

The POV and composition are great, as are the tones. You captured each and every detail of his face perfectly. Great job!
