    Thanks for the positive criticism - I knew that the shot needed something, but wasn't sure where to go with it. This is the first time I've tried B&W photography - it certainly is challenging!

    Like the sharp realism here though overall there is just too much 'clutter'. A tighter crop might get rid of some of that and perhaps a vignette to get us right on on the soldier and his weapon.

    Great potential for a great candid or character study or portrait or other statement. The tire distracts me greatly so I might have framed this differently - as a waist up portrait for example. Alternatively, since the full figure permits you to incorporate the full weapon which is THE powerful element in the shot, I might have selectively darkened the background and the white coloured vehicle to make the soldier pop.
