I agree w/ everyone too! This photo is powerful, dramatic & real. I would like to know if you used window light & what your settings were. This is the kind of photo that really speaks to me:)
Congratulations on your Finalist & POTD.

Wow, definitely a winner. Not only is the lighting first class, the expression that was caught is one in a million--like Sara above said, very, very real.

Congratulation. I like the idea of this image, however, for my taste, I think it too dark and that some detail was lost that would have given it more pop.
