As usual, a wonderful composition and very effective use of tonal range.

But, why is he in a cage?

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Clearly looks to have a volatile aggressive personality. Think 'Silence of the Lambs'.

...well maybe not.

I love the shot overall as a whole, but the lack of sharpness on his face is throwing me off a bit. I do love the black and white though.

I really like the overall mood and composition, and the lighting is excellent but Jarvis CS is right, it's not very sharp. Looks to be front-focused to me (on the diagonal scaffolding pole???).

This C&C comes, quite unfairly, from the unchallenged champion of un-sharp btw.

Good point, sirs. I cannot unsee this as well. The lens do play tricks sometimes, because focus was confirmed /when shooting wide, I do not recompose/. I'm just f***ing broke to get a new glass.

On the 'plus' side, I find almost all of your photos to be interesting and this is no exception.

There's quite a lot of technically almost perfect stuff posted here on POTN pretty much every day that, in the end, leaves me completely cold.

I don't believe you about the 'silent' part. Can you remember what focus setting you used for the shot? Did you use a zonal focus option, maybe?

The unsharp focus doesn't bother me. It lends an air of candidness and a strong sense of time: this picture was captured in the moment, the guy was in the middle of doing something.

Didn't HCB say sharp focus is overrated?

Expression, composition and use of light trump precise focus :).


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).
