This is a shot concept for an album cover or something toward the album. It's not complete yet and I'm not completely happy with it. The light at the top right is all part of the shot and removing it removed the atmosphere around the shot. Anyway I had nothing to post so I thought I'd post my work once more.

Tell me what your thoughts are.

Yeah, I think the light works in this photo. However there seems to be a grainy texture around the face of the subject that distracts from the picture. Other than that, nice!

I like it but it's too grainy
My kind a picture! Love it! Would look much better with a little more light but this works for me. What kind a genre is this artist about?
Personally, I think this is very good - the darkness and grain all go to make up the atmosphere.

Is he driving? it was the question that came to my mind. Its quite dark, and so the light on the top right hand side acts as an opening that illuminates whats hidden in the darkness. And so because of that concept - which may not be what you were thinking - I like this picture.
Great angle but for me the first thing that I thought when I saw it was "too dark". I don't know, may be it is intentional but it is too dark for me

Lighting is too flat and leave the image lacking in contrast. Don't use it for the cover.
