Excellent image with lots of impact because of the emotion it conveys. Your skillful management of the lighting (probably with dodging/burning?) makes this image exceptional by directing our eyes where you want them to go.

Thanks Minnie. My thought is that the "V" shape formed by his arms lead you into his face.

You are right about dodging/burning but I do wish that I had burned in that guys ears a bit more :)

This shows the power of the artist to control the eye. Well done! S-
