    The first monochrome shot works well.
    The subject and background are well balanced.

    The colour shot does not work as well.

    Alright, you're going to hate my critique but I have to be honest right?

    My initial reaction to these photos reminded me of a website I read about recently in a local paper: Hot Chicks with Douchebags if we had a hot chick in here we'd be right on the money.

    Technically:
    Both shots look very sharp, but a little on the grainy side, maybe that was in the compression saving out of whatever you saved them in. The first image wins in the DOF contest and is overall more interesting.
    For some reason the second image makes me feel like the horizon is tilted, maybe it's the lines in the concrete but it feels a little off kilter. Also it's weird, look at his shoe in the second image, it isn't very sharp, kind of confusing to look at.

    The model:
    Well, like I said, would fit right in on the previously mentioned website. And he even managed to purse his lips a la project runway style. Very clique, nothing in either of the two photos say anything about who this person is, they just scream "I'm better than you... deal with it"

    In accordance with "The Pact" that is my feedback.
