    Besides the perfect subject lighting, the background is handled nicely. Looks like two side lights and a light down low on the background? Hot lights?

    The lighting is nice, but lighting is a technical thing, a trick. You've obviously mastered the technical aspects of photography, so I won't flatter you any further on those points. I don't feel engaged with your subject. The image may communicate something about his personality; maybe he is cold and aloof, but I just don't really feel that. It would be a nice piece of commercial work, for a catalog or a headshot. Nevertheless, it fails to tell a story, or challenge the viewer.

    Jesse, evidently it challenged your powers of observation, as this is a photo of a woman not a man. My intent was to depict strength and power that is usually subscribed to a man. While you are entitled to your opinion, the opinion that really counts is hers. She put it on a Gay web site and got thousands of hits because of it (so, I guess that it worked). Which really is a lesson in critique IMO. Personally, when I do not cotton to a photo, I usually ask about the reasoning behind it.
