    its really unclear. not sure of its compression or noise but i can hardly make out the facial features. great idea though i like the angle, the pose, and the location.

    quite possibly the compression.

    as for me, there is more to it, than the added in subject, personally, this would be great with or without him. there is a bit of order and movement going on with the slight opposing diagonals and such.

    the lack of facial features is due to the angle of lighting

    with that said, here is another one from the same night.

    with that said, thanks for the feedback, I might try re shooting this scene with more of a focus on my friend, or a band possibly.

    when that time comes, i'd like to make use of a softbox.

    the second one I am not feeling. if you have him in your photograph he should be the main subject not the parking structure. the shadow is to harsh in the second one and his position looks very uncomfortable

    the second one is pretty candid. my friend was getting tired of us taking photographs using available light, but yeah it looks uncomfortable.

    i agree with you on the fact that he should be the main subject, but not fully. i have a certain soft spot for rhythm and repetition. therefore it means i like to incorporate different aspects of design and composition into my work. it makes for a not so average picture in my mind.

    wow, haven't read a paragraph like that in a while.
    The first one is a little too artsy and intentionally dramatic for me. It comes across as pretentious, which it wouldn't if the subject actually acknowledged the camera.

    The second is, IMO, quite nice but suffers from an excess of space that lets the tension down.
