i really like the lighting of this shot, and i prefer the details lost in shadows. i think that this photo begs to be b+w
personally i would have preferred a slightly less wide angle for this shot. this is not because of the pose, but because of the fact that the person's shoes are slightly overpowering. maybe if he was naked feet, it would have been good. (i know you couldnt change that but i wonder whether such things should change the way we shoot)
oh and btw, i am just learning myself and have also realised that i am able to think of all these comments only after seeing the photo, whereas while shooting such small things are usually overlooked.
