The black wrap on the gun stock stands out as the focal point but doesn't connect with the title for me or the rest of the image.

The way in which his head is cut off from the frame seems odd and does not work for me. Perhaps a closer, detail view would have worked better.

I really can't decide whether or not I'd like to see his face. Works well in this challenge, but I don't know how well it would stand on its own.

For me I would hve added his head, but I know a lot of people would complain (I bet). The way you took this picture was very clever and that is what made it good.
