Dull to be honest. I like the overall concept but with a huge sea of blackness and minimal subject it is a bit of a turn off for me. I'd have preferred to see more subject.
What were you aiming to achieve? Are you happy with it?
Interesting... When I fist opened up this thread I was reading your text under the photo. From what I could see in my peripheral vision I thought it was a saxophone. Funny how the mind works sometimes.
When I looked straight at it I saw the smoke but it took a second before I noticed the face. Then I looked down and realized it was a jacket.
I do like the color but not sure about the background as mentioned above. I haven't decided if there is too much black or not.
