The choice in lighting was very effective, it was a very dramatic feel with the high contrast, especially in the face. I can understand the the blurring of the foreground and background, however the object on the front right of the image is a little distracting. Some contrast on his arms would help. I had to stare at it for a while before I realized his fists were by his head. The arm on the left does not look like it connects to the left hand. The blurring on the left wrist looks weird. <-- minor things. Overall a great picture!
