This crop seems a bit too close for me. 5.

I would have preferred a vertical crop of the picture, where you can see his forehead and chin. Cropped like this is a bit disturbing, one expects to see more and it's a shame because the lighting is very nice.

"Back" lighting???

Lovely portrait but the backlighting has been well and truly upstaged.

Not entirely backlit. Your lights are more to the sides than behind him. Nice portrait, but there are too many highlights in his eyes. Only one highlight is needed to give the eye their round looking form. :)

The fact that we can see catch lights suggests to me that this isn't back light. Nice shot all the same.

Cool photo, I think would have been a little more dramatic if the lighting from the fill was a little dimmer.
