Your Photo: Our Critique

Photo submitted by Tom CallanSmoke is challenging, and the totally blown hotspot just below the subject is where your eye is drawn, unfortunately. There’s potential here, but the subject just looks bored, or asleep. If it was trying to show confidence is a panic-inducing environment, it didn’t work, because there is zero engagement with the subject.
