Your Photo: Our Critique

Marlon Richardson submitted this image with no additional data. Nice job composing and capturing this moment. There is no distortion to the bench, which is well placed off center and balanced nicely by the backpack on the ground. The window also adds interest to the background. The subject is full of character, from the shoes to the overgrown beard.  The light is nice and even. Going with black and white was a great decision. This photo has good tonal range, texture and details, all are accentuated with the black and white approach.
