    The exposure is very good. The left arm being right up front there is a bit distracting crossing the image the way it does.

    Powerful shot!!! Looking out the window can mean a million different things. I love that! The exposure is on point from this end.

    The only problem I see is that the photo is vertical as opposed to horizontal.

    I agree with Craig - I'd love to see this in a horizontal crop - and the tones make me think black/white would be awesome (but I'm partial :wink: )

    Nice work

    I know i am supposed to be critiquing this, but uh....why are you in MY room. seriously, if those walls were dark green, you would be looking out my back window. You would be standing next to my closet door, and that pine tree in the corner of window would most likely have many crows in it...lol...just thought i would point this out

    I don't think it's going to be a suprise to people that I'm going to suggest cropping in by a healthy amount. I think either vertical or horizontal will work, but there is a lot of "extra" back ground in the image. Most of what is above your head and below your left arm can go. I think you'll find it more impactful if you get in closer.

    If I were taking that photo, I think I would have tried moving the model a little closer to the window so his left arm would be bent a bit and the photo could be more tightly cropped.
