I think the blurred head mars what would be a great shot.

I like it except for the moving head, well I'm torn, maybe I like the movement. It is a nice image. I could see it as an ad in a magazine.. for suicide prevention.

Well done!! I can feel the enclosing tightness of his space by your use of border. Love the DOF, detail and tones. Nice image all the way around, imho.

the pisture is excellent and really does convey distress. i think better overall lighting, with some focus on sharper contrast, would have made it even better. 7

A fine image. I like the overall tone of the image and the motion blur really adds to the mood and seems to increase the sense of distress. Nice job!

Another great example of extreme emotion. Nicely done, the lighting fits the image, gives more to it. 8.
