    Cool pic!!!!! I'd crop some of the brick wall out so he's more the center of attention. :)

    Keep up the good work!

    have any post processing tools?
    Id try to play around with your color & contrast :)
    and a crop.
    the bricks are slightly dull and he doesnt pop well.
    i have a big problem like this myself that others have pointed out to help me, since i love bricks as backgrounds.
    maybe something like this :

    The focus is a bit soft.

    thankyouall
    for your comments and critique, christina I personally like you're version better than mine, good work. Do you use ps? Because I actually don't have it and really need to get it soon.

    -and to thebrainchild, I was thinking about cropping it but wanted to get comments first, thanks though.

    I think there's too much space around him even on the second cut. I think the look on his face tells a tale and should be in the forefront. I'm no whiz with PP, but here's an attempt.

    If he's cropped above the waist, I actually don't mind all the wall to the left. Here's my noobie attempt at playing with the shot:

    I like his "don't care" expression but feel like he should "pop" from the background more. Try some burning effects - usually helps. Otherwise, nice shot.

    side lighting would have really helped in this situation. looks really flat. also, what focal length was it? That might have contributed.

    Thing is I wasn't really going out to shoot a portrait of him, we were going up to the top of a school so I could shoot a foot portrait for an assignment and he was going to make sure I didn't fall off the edge. As we were climbing down the school I was just like...hey dude get up against this wall and pose, and he just did it.

    btw I'm about to make a thread with the foot portrait so you can all see it.

    and thanks for all the help guys.
