Like the lighting on the face and the expression too. For me the car headlights need to be toned down as at the moment they draw your eye away from the figures.

Brilliant lighting and an excellent male portrait, full of menace and power.

Excellent lighting and composition, for a rather menacing feel. I agree about the background lights, though, for me, it's more the street lamp than the car headlights that's the distraction. I think you could clone out the street lamp completely, without looking out of place (the lamp post is only just visible but could just as well be a telephone pole) and you could probably get away with leaving the car headlights as they are.

Thanks David. I actually thought about cloning the street lamp...will follow the suggestion and make it look like a telephone pole. I'll post a version later if I have the time.
