This is a great shot. I love the side lighting as well as the light caught in his eyes. In fact I would go so far as to say that the light draws you up through the photograph, straight to his eyes, which is the point of impact for me. I also appreciate the fact that you chose to put this photograph into black and white, it takes away distraction and allows the viewer to notice the details, such as his freckles. I think this is a great shot all around, the lighting, crop, emotion, the fact he is not head on with the camera, and the model himself. Awesome work! I hope to see more.
