Hi ramakantg and welcome to the forum!!

That's very interesting shot with good composition and excellent texture!! However, I would really like to see the eyes in sharper focus, I think that's the only thing that's letting this shot down. But for a first shot??? - very good!! :)

Great first post!

Mark

It seems your focal point happened to be on the chin. That's where the image is most sharp, when in portraiture the number one thing that is taught is to get the eyes in focus. This doesn't have to be the case for all portraiture (when creatively breaking the rules) but as a beginner it should be what you ought to be thinking of achieving.

Finally the contrast can be increased just that little bit more judging from my monitors, otherwise a solid attempt with an interesting subject.

Really nice shot apart from the focus point that others have already mentioned.

It's a shame that my first shot wasn't as memorable! :)
