    Good. It's gritty. I like that gritty large-grain look for documentary work. I like the composition also, it gives the feeling that the camera's not there at all, like the viewer is a fly on the wall, observing these people. The photo is also successful in capturing the uncomfortable teenage look of self-consciousness. Is this in a club? I think you should do more like this, maybe a study of this group of friends or something. This has a strong psychological element, that could be your "thing".
