I'm no expert, but I think it's a great shot. The exposure looks good, and there are no harsh shadows on his face. Just like Kento mentioned, you can see yourself, which I think is a cool "signature" to a picture.I know it's petty, but some people may say that you may have wanted to change the perspective a little bit, so that the sky does not form a line through his head, but I think that's a matter of personal preference. You did a great job blurring out the background, too! Keep up the good work!

Looks good to me. However, the self-portrait in the one lens is would be better with a center crop in my opinion. Or maybe wear darker shorts next time. This shot has a pretty narrow depth of field -- the ears are out of focus. Did you choose the wide aperture by design?

Nice pic

Few things to think about

1. Shoulders look very square, slight angle may compose better

2. Horizon is going through the head

I think it looks really nice except I'd like a little more ...something... from the camera left. Maybe it's because I'm so used to seeing umbrella used for this stuff and I'm ruined for life. If a big light source was used it might give it a little more ...something... and still balance it with that great filtered sun from camera right.

If arms aren't showing, it might be good not to cross them and have the wrinkled look. I'm not convince square shoulders are bad for a guy. They are tilted so there is some good asymmetry.

If you were a touch lower or farther away with a longer lens it would be pretty easy to clone yourself out of his glasses.
