I think that the only thing i would probably change would be more
light reflecting on the sword..The right eye tense has to be somehow balanced .
However I'd like to know what did you have in mind..Which is the message you want to pass
through your photo? That would make all the difference..I believe it is almost as egual to the color-one I really adore!! :)

Thank you very much for the critique,

I wanted mystery in this shot more than anything else to be honest and that's why the shadows and b/w are heavy, I want the viewer to take interest in the character and wonder what his story is.

A very good piece. I agree about the the distancing and the sword does to be exposed some how. The only other thing is the hands, they should be reversed, uless ofcore he is left handed, lol. But all in all it is a great piece. Next to the katana that phillipino sword he is wielding is my favorite.

Hmm, I guess I will try and critique it. Amazing, hard to not blather on about something subjective. (such as the chest hairs). But I digress. I think that he should have taken a broader stance as if to anticipate combat, then backed up the camera so that the entire sword was still in frame. Maybe try getting some light to reflect off the blade so that it sticks out more. (assuming you didn't have the sword fade into the background.) Other than that, I see nothing else I can really suggest. But, I might try again in a couple hours when I am a bit more awake.
