Attending a met and greet of Justin Trudeau who is hoping to become the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada which is current the 3RD party in the Government of Canada.

Possibly not the most flattering portrait M Trudeau will have had taken...

As everything was in auto, it's a standard indoor flash shot: point and shoot with no great creative input. It might have been nicer to have eye contact, though it looks like he's talking to someone tall to your left. The lights above him are distracting and could be cloned out, and he won't thank you for shooting him with something stuck in his teeth!
It all looks a bit underexposed as his hair and jacket are bleeding into the dark background, so maybe a little more exposure, then selective darkening to make him stand out more. You could darken the distracting faces in the background then.

Do you actually read any of the comments made when you submit pictures to the critique gallery?

We need to know more about how and why you took the picture...what you were trying to achieve. Your second paragraph about resizing and sharpening is of no real use for critiquing.

Reasonable, but why on earth use ISO800 and flash. ISO 100 would be far better here. This is a touch under exposed. It needs brightening up a bit and the dodge tool running over his hair to separate it from the background.

Well he is better looking than the leader of the British Liberal Party, more star quality! It would be pretty easy to get rid of the chaps on his shoulders. The one to the left looks like the actor John Simm, The Lakes, Life on Mars etc.. Sure this wasn't an actors do?
Apart from. that I think its a good capture.

Uploaded a mod based on the other comments. I diont think for a photojournalism shot though that other people incidental in the shot would be cloned out.
