Great expression and I love the way that you've arranged your hair in this, although I must confess to not caring too much for the colour of the sky, as I feel it looks a little artificial.

Your treatment of the background really adds to this - gives it a feeling of coming torment that you're facing head-on.

I like the edge highlighting, but I'm less fond of what I think is apparent muting of the highlights in the sky with the shadow/highlight filter. But the portrait itself is lovely.

You definately look as though you are contemplating a heavy task. Great job.

Got the emotional level up on this one too. I have absolutely no idea why ... but I am really drawn to the flyaway piece of hair.

I love the highlight the sun gives, really adding so much character and dynatimism to your jacket. A very serious look of concentration; as if studding something important and taking it apart in your mind to find the weakness. Nice job.

i love the pose and the expression matches the title to a T,not to mention the focus is good. BUT seems a bit wierd(unnatural) in the sky part to me(hope my monitor isnt goin,lol)

Do you need to talk? Good shot and nicely focused. All the colors work well. Good use of the lighting.

Someone looks mad. Good shot. You need an orange hat though.

Very defiant. That is a look that could kill. Wonder what would cause that.
