    I assume the tilt was intentional?

    You cut off the feet.

    the tilt was intentional, and the cutting of the feet were not :p

    I propped this on top of my car and used the camera strap as leverage. still trying to find the right tripod. and i just noticed that overexposed house on the far right takes away some attention from the main subject :[

    There should be more in the direction that you are facing because that is where our eye is lead by your face. The empty space to the right of your body in this shot is wasted - your body acts as a dividing line that cuts off that part of the image. And, as has already been stated, the tilt does not work here. Tilt is something that must be used carefully as it is a very strong element. It should only be used sparingly, and then with great thought to ensure that it does not override the message.

    As to your attire I can only say that the strong blue pulls the eye, and in an interview you want people to look at your face. Grab a copy of Dressing the Man, by Allan Flusser - he knows a great deal about mens style.
