I really like the composition and stark contrast. I'm not totally convinced on the grain though - or is it just me? Might be this laptop display.

Great portrait though - you feel a connection with the subject's direct eye contact. There's enough difference along the bottom of the image to counteract what "we've been told" about centered compositions.

I think it's a great photo, and the grain meets the mood of his eyes. I might have cropped of a little at the bottom. Maybe.

It was clearly the laptop display - it looks better on my calibrated monitor - and I like it just fine! :)

i'm not too sure on what 'Alien Skin' is (i will google) but as an image, the large grain texture makes it appear to be a scan of an old print. i like that the white of the second eye is showing through to give overall balance.

I like it but to me the bright shoulder would have been better somewhat subdued and with more detail and perhaps a bit more of the darker eye. The shoulder change might improve the sense of place.
