    I like it but might like it even more if it were at a slightly different angle... Maybe lower with the camera more toward his front so that you could see at least one of his eyes a little better... Either way nice shot though.

    Kind of like it as is. Sort of exactly as seen.

    I like it except that object being stuck into his brain. I'm all about breaking the rules of composition but that may be better photochopped out unless its the point of the pic, it draws the eyes to it.

    Both very nice shots. I'm not getting that black frame, though, as it's mostly black anyway. Just hard to notice, that's all :)

    The low-key overall look with just the sun illuminating his face, really makes this shot for me. And that book fits right in!

    The face appears to me as a confused mess... i am even confused whether his eyes are open or not...if open, where he is looking at...all these much matter in the evaluation of a portrait......

    My slogans are yet for the first shot :D
