I'd like to see a touch more detail in the shadows.

If you were already happy with it, then why seek comments? I'm in agreement, by the way, that it would have looked better with more detail in the shadow areas.

Because I wanted too....
Everyone outside the photography world loves it. Client loves it. I love it. Thats all that matters. If someone wants to comment I have no problem. My skin is thick......

I like it, as is. I am new to this but am quickly gravitating towards a preference for artistic choice in what remains negative space. Here i like the isolation of what you choose as your subject and the rest really needs no detail and, in fact, i think would detract from the subject. Just a matter of taste.

Many people post here because they find other people's opinions interesting, not necessarily to seek info on how to change the vision or feel of their image, or to 'improve' it.

Michael, I see what you're trying to do with the image, I like dramatic pics as well, however, for me the brightness of his face coupled with the rest of his body going completely to black looks a bit unsettling to me, kind of a floating head syndrome.

I'm not 'calling you out', just giving my opinion. On my screen, his entire body has gone to black, and my eyes move upward and then his head appears as if from nowhere. His face is also very bright, which contrasts greatly with the deep black so as to make it seem even more prominen, so that part of the image 'sticks out' to me.

If the image is exactly as you wish it to be, fantastic, carry on. My opinion would be to consider either bringing down the exposure on his face, or lifting the shadows so that we could see some of his body. Either way, the image is yours, express yourself as you see fit.
