Nicely Done ... @ Plausible Realism (i.e. I could have perceived it as a single image creatively staged and post styled).
I'm taking particular note at your attention to your lighting angles ... referring to the post work to create a shaft of light from the upper right window to his neck, as well as the coordination of the backlighting from the main windows. In that regard the haloing/perimeter dodging of your subject is more believable, as well as inferring additional light coming from unseen windows.
My preference would maybe be for a slightly less HDR look to the background, as it seems to have a bit more of that look than the subject that kinda tips things @ PP magic, but still ... quite well done. The color of his wasitband catches my attention a bit as well. BUT, way easier to "nit" than to do ... your effort and attention to detail is admirable ... particularly for a "first attempt".
OT @ the 16-28
The curvature in the columns, etc. ... were you shooting with the camera tilted upwards, or were you shooting straight with the film plane perpendicular to the ground? I'm considering the Tokina and am wondering @ its distortion characteristics ... albeit understanding of UWA's "tricky" usage at keeping things straight vs. inducing curvature (vs. lens distortion).
