Great portrait, facial expression and composition, B/W works really well here.

Great composition and very dramatic approach to this compelling and intimate study, Des! Its all about that intense 'look' - but the inclusion of the hand and the way it is posed, makes the image for me.

Oh wow, the b/w treatment just makes the textures and patterns pop- and draws the attention right straight to those soulful eyes. Wonderful.

Yeah, that's good. The color version is nice but this version has a little something extra.

Incredible presence of this fellow-so well seen with the expressive eyes, mouth, and the hand . Superb!
