That is a superb, powerful portrait - the title fits very well. I like everything about this shot: the cropping, minimal background, side light and the concentrated look on his face, as if he is about to say something.

That is a wonderful portrait. Could be a drawing by Albrecht Dürer!

Very good. This is the sort of shots I want to try and get next year. Looks perfect to try the 'dragan effect' with.
Pentax pour des images riches en détails!

The lights, the pose and the crop is OK. I think this is the best of your portrait series but I feel some distorsions. Maybe I'm wrong.
