He looks quite a bit more than "barely" alive : )
For some reason, my eye keeps being drawn to the light spot on his shoulder.

Looks like an angry start to the week =:-O Very sharp and I like the light for the most part. One highlight on the left shoulder keeps grabbing my eye; I think I would have toned that down and/or softened its edges.

Yeh, I pretty much felt like this today :D

I like his expression - it's very emotive. I also like the black and white colour.

I think the lighting could he improved though and the contrast maybe upped a little to accentuate what shadows exist in the shot.
