    You can't always get what you want

    Hi guys,

    Love the narrative with this one, the young chap seemingly sulking due to some perceived wrong done to him and the sloping lines seem to signify things are going down hill. Well that's my take anyway....
    As far as the shot is concerned I'm thinking you have him dark like that for a broody look , but I wonder how this would be if you lightened him a bit and applied a vignette.

    Isn't it a cool thing in nature that the colours never seem to clash...

    I have no issues with you editing my photos

    I really like the textures. I agree that you might try lightening it just a touch. I don't know what to think about your tilted composition. Usually this kind of image is squarely horizontal.

    Being I have a boy about the same age - seeing this strikes a chord with me ... "brooding age" is what I would call it. I would only suggest that a little bit of a vignette around the edges may help ...maybe even a little bit more of blur ...to bring in the focus on the boy even more. Otherwise, it is perfect to me. :-)

    Nice composition, nice the angle however I'd like to see the face lighten up a bit

    Love the darkness feel to the image, with the upset young man.
