A strong and dramatic portrait.
It could be interpreted as "determination."

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Nice processing in B & W. I love his defined cheek and jaw bones. Gives him a sense of "distinguishment." And great work with light and shadows. The shadow that runs down his neck highlights his "adam's apple" well.
