    I really like #1, 2 would be nice if he were looking at the camera.

    I think 1 and 3 are the best... on #1, the focus seems slightly off. Don't know if that was intentional or not, but I think it'd be better if it were sharply locked on the eye. Love B/W portraits though. Nice. :)

    Haha thats what I was thinking when I saw them!

    I like #3 the best, the vignetting is a little intense on the top right corner though.

    I think #1 is your shot out of all of these. The B&W conversion masks (or actually uses to enhance) some of the issues with the others.

    #2 and #3 have some pretty serious hot-spot issues as well as some posterization. In #4, your subject gets lost and the composition is a bit dull/snapshot-ish.

    #1 has a lot of things to say, though. The shadows work well bringing the glove in as the second element in the composition, framing/etc work. Very much like a shot that might see the inside CD booklet or something. Nice.
