Jide Alakija: You can start by saying what you feel when you see it or what you think. That sometimes helps.

You have captured a very poignant mood here - the man looking out of the frame, immersed in his own thoughts, juxtaposed with the shiny car, is a very powerful image. The light catching his shoulders and face enhances the mood. I just wonder if you could crop out the black shape on the right as it's a bit distracting and I'm not sure if it adds anything to the composition.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Ingrid.

Re: distraction, I think I'm breaking the rules here as within the context of the shot being taken in the car it works for me.
You really do have a great talent for photographing people. Technically this may not be one of your best, but emotionally it is very powerful
A bit too dark in my opinion.
