Portrait attempt

By Gazzten
Just trying to figure out what makes a good portrait shot here. This is heavily cropped. Too close? Grateful for any thoughts and comments.

The stance drew me in, better than sunglasses.

I think the crop is fine, Garry, and this shot is nicely exposed and sharp. But in portraits I think the eyes are the most important feature. I think the shot is missing something by not showing the eyes.
