I think it's a very cool shot actually.

I think it could work, but I'm not really a fan of the setting. The lighting and the pose are exhibiting a certain kind of intensity, and I think that the white walls and floor of a studio aren't really adding to the image.

Anyway, the lighting and the pose are sore of "intense". The shadows are pretty deep and the pose is kind of confrontational, but I could definitely see that working in lots of scenarios. It's just that the setting is really killing it for me. This just seems like it's begging for some context other than "posed in a blank studio." But hey, that's just my first impression. I might change my mind over time.

Too much contrast. You lost his face and pants.

Thanks for your input. I was going for something a bit dramatic. Trying out a different lighting setup than I am used to...

It is dramatic and I like the way the shadow falls on the wall.

This.
I would clone out the area where the floor and walls meet to make it seamless. Also if you going to do this type of shot have him wear boots. Nobody looks tough in sandals.

As far as I can see it should be

C&C = Comments & Criticism

Agree the shadow and background are the weak point.

I thought it was constructive critism! But critics and comments works to :-).

I agree with Dave on this one. Nobody looks tough in sandals, haha. Also I don't like his shirt but that might be personal. You said you were going for something dramatic and that it is. I like his pose and facial expression but I think you lost a bit of detail on the dark side of his face. Maybe if the light source was more on front of him and the shadow more behind him it would work better.

He looks tough. I like the muscular body and the arms back with shoulders forward. The veins casting a shadow on the arms also shows masculinity and strength. Very good pose on a very good model.

Thanks for your input.
I added the high contrast in my edit. There is more detail on the face and pants in the original picture. The white wall actually gave me a good fill in reflection. I maybe went too strong on the contrast...

I can't add anything that folks haven't said already. Lose the sandals. Either move the light more to the left or bounce some light to lift the shadows just a bit on the subject's right. Cloning the seams is also a good idea.

Basically, I'm +1'ing several comments ahead of me. :-)


Some moments are too amazing to be ruined with words.
