Ohhhh . . . I'm not a big b&w person but this in b&w adds such a haunting feel . . .compliments the story told by the image beautifully. The color version is wonderful as well but the b&w just seems to speak "louder". So very well done Usman. #9273374

I liked this in color and I really like it in B W... it is haunting because his eyes are so piercing. Very nice tones and contrasts. #9273453

I think the wonderful tonality you created in beautiful black and white makes for a powerful image. With black and white, close attention to composition, lighting, perspective and the context with which it is shot in are important. And you've succeeded in all aspects.

Congratulations on your finalist, Usman. #9373959
