This was a simple shot for a simple purpose that turned out well in my head. Please critique it as is, but what I'm really interested in knowing is how it communicates. How do you read the subject? What is your impression of who he is and what he does? I'm guessing that the responses will be dead opposite of the truth, but I'm hoping they're not.
I can't resist mentioning that there's one thing in the photo that's purposefully left out.
