    Wow! What a way to start your TPF posts! (Welcome!)

    This was a posed picture, I assume? I love the lighting, especially how the shadows play around his inside right shoulder. The composition is also bang on, in my opinion.

    Well done!

    Edit: I have nominated it.

    I noticed one thing though, it seems to get quite grainy or chunky near his cheek/neck area. Was there excessive contrasting done?

    Yes , this was quite a low contrast image as it was shot through light rain and on a badly lit , dim stage with multiple coloured stage lights either side of him , the original also had some odd highlights in his eyes and even though it looks a little eerie I cloned them out .

    Amazing, I actually really like the blackness of the eyes. Am I correct in understanding that this was taken at some kind of show/performance?

    Geno , thanks for the comment , this was shot at a chinese new year celebration , I also liked the eyes too and was the reason behind naming the image focused .
