    Good portrait, would have been nice without the window in the background, that way you could have given your subject better contrast.

    Attractive rendition of the warrior but I would have lowered the feathers in front as it draws attention away from him. The lighting and detail are excellent. Was this taken during a dance - I can almsot hear the beat - Love it!

    Great choice for monochrome. The detail is terrific. Would have been even better IMO if you had included all of the headdress, or cloned it to look that way.

    Nice. Wonderful portrait. I really like the lighting you captured.

    I would never get rid of the feathers in this photo which are a huge part of this traditional dancer's regalia. The photo was taken at an indoor event so the background I agree is weak but I won't be cloning it out. Thanks for the feedback too bad it annoys you hahaha.

    This annoys me! the portrait is fantastic, the black and white conversion is really good. But the feathers in the foreground kill the composition for me. Darn. Such an intense image.

    Perfect profile, now clone out the background and especially the foreground feathers and this would have been my number one.

    The background with picture etc spoilt this for me. Otherwise a great study.
